About Loghi Rosso di Montalcino
Loghi Rosso di Montalcino is selected from the same 2 hectares of Sangiovese grapes that the Brunello comes from, although the grapes are selected for the Rosso for the softer fruit and the brighter and fresher side of things. After the hand harvest, the grapes are brought to the cellar for a natural fermentation in stainless steel and a slow process to get as much aromatic and phenolic character from the grape skins as possible. After aging for 8 months in a very large Slavonian oak botti, the wine rests in the bottle for many months before release. This wine is the definition of ‘Baby Brunello.’ The serious and more structured grapes were clearly avoided here, letting only the grace and finesse of the fruit fill the delicate wine inside. It alludes to seriousness, it hints at big structure, but the wine remains alive and absolutely stocked with a vibrant personality. Soft and perfectly ripe cherries, cherry cordial, forested truffled earthiness, and cocoa fill the nose as well as the mouth and then is a long roller coast of a finish with intermingled acidity and delicious tannins.
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 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.
