The 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.  The hand-harvested fruit was left to naturally ferment separately in stainless steel tanks, and once complete, the Merlot was moved to first and second use French barrique for 6 months before it was combined with the resting Sangiovese to age another year together in tank. A nose of fresh cherries, dark plums, lots of flowers, and crushed rocks, leads to a palate that is distinctly Tuscany. Rich in structure that is full of acidity and only the soft kind of chewy tannins. The Merlot seems to wrap its plush arms around the tight Sangiovese, melding together as a perfect match of fruit, structure, and length.

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.
