93 points Vinous
"The 2018 Il Rospo (Cabernet Sauvignon) is another incredibly distinctive wine in this range from Montesecondo. Grilled herbs, leather, smoke and menthol are all laced into a core of dark plummy fruit. Vinification and aging in cement preserves remarkable purity in the flavors. The 2018 is a joyous, exuberant wine that delivers the goods."
Vinous Reverie Notes
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. From a one-hectare parcel with 20-year-old vines on the original Montesecondo property. Destemmed with part pressed immediately and part macerated for a short 4-6 days; spontaneous fermentation and aging in concrete tank for a year; bottled without fining or flitration and held for six more months before release. “Rospo” is Italian for the “toad” gracing all of the labels.
