Azienda Loghi is a small family farm located in the province of Siena, Tuscany, situated within the up-and-coming Orcia Valley D.O.C., as well as an area called Crete Senesi, which is famous for their white truffles. The farm is a remote 52 hectares of land where much of it is covered in natural forests, and 17 hectares are dedicated to what many connoisseurs prefer to, or at least say greatly rivals, the much more popular truffles of Alba. Here, Valentino Berni, who has had 2 other generations to learn from, collects these earthly gems, yet also has an exceptional passion and knack for making beautiful wines and olive oil from their 4 hectares of vineyards and 4 hectares of olive trees. As to preserve the land for the health of all ‘crops’ that he harvests, Valentino’s farming practices on his sandy clay soils are strictly pristine and completely natural. The methods in the cellar follow this minimal approach from the fields, as Valentino allows natural fermentations for his reds, ages in used barrique and large Slavonic oak as to not impart too much foreign flavor to the wines, and keeps sulfite use to an absolute minimum in order to showcase the grapes. The wines are fresh and approachable, with great structure and class, showing off the local Sangiovese fruit, as well as other varietals. Valentino's Rosso Cinabro is a remarkable example of the little known, and surely underappreciated, Orcia DOC of Tuscany. Traditionally based on Sangiovese blends, this wine consists of 85% Sangiovese and 15% Colorino, the well-known blending grape that is aptly named for its intense dark color that it adds to other grapes. The hand-harvested fruit is brought in for natural fermentation in stainless steel and then is moved to age for one year in used French barriques. After a light filtering, the wine is bottled and rests for another year before release to the market. It is serious and robust, yet still quite lively and fresh on the palate. A beautifully remarkable and complex red, it will be long lived, as well as a wonderful accompaniment to rustic Italian fare anytime.
