ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Azienda Loghi Brunello di Montalcino
Azienda Loghi Brunello di Montalcino comes from a special selection of fruit in the vineyard, for only the vines that have the lowest yield and the most densely concentrated grapes are brought to the cellar to make this wine (the other grapes of the vineyard are kept aside for the Rosso di Montalcino). The wine naturally ferments in stainless steel tanks before it ages for at least 24 months in large Slavonian oak botti. After a few years in bottle, the wine is ready for the market, and is approachable now, but built to last for years to come. The grapes shoot forth from the glass as clearly the ‘chosen ones;’ red cherry, coriander, eucalyptus, eucalyptus wood, and high tones that are distinctly Italian. In the mouth, this traditional Brunello is dark and brooding, with wet earth, mushrooms, tree bark, and acidity and chewy tannins that beg for air or food or both. Built for the long haul, this wonderfully expressive and layered wine can be enjoyed now, as it is clearly and distinctly and fantastically, Brunello.
About Azienda Loghi
Azienda Loghi is a small family farm situated in the province of Siena, Tuscany, within the up-and-coming Orcia Valley DOC as well as an area famed for its white truffles called Crete Senes. A remote 52 hectares of land where much of it is covered in natural forests, just 17 hectares are dedicated to what many connoisseurs say greatly rivals–if not surpasses–the popular truffles of Alba. Valentino Berni, who learned from 2 generations before him, collects these earthly gems and 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 that he harvests, Valentino’s farming practices on his sandy clay soils are strictly pristine and completely natural. In the cellar, he follows this minimal approach from the fields, as Valentino allows natural fermentations for his reds, ages in used barrique and large Slavonic oak so as to not impart too much foreign flavor to the wines, and keeps sulfite use to an absolute minimum. As a result, his wines are fresh and approachable, with great structure and class, showing off the local Sangiovese fruit, as well as other varieties.
