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 Toscano is a delightful and clean style wine, and is Valentino’s largest production at this small estate in the Orcia Valley. Being a blend of the local Sangiovese, as well as Merlot, it is a common combination that has sprung forth to showcase the way international varietals can express themselves in the Tuscan landscape. All hand-harvested fruit is left to naturally ferment separately in stainless steel tanks, and once complete, the Merlot is moved to first and second use French barrique for 6 months before it is combined with the resting Sangiovese to age another year together in tank. No filtration is done before bottling, and the result is complex yet very easy to drink.
