Logorroico Rosso natural wine, low sulphites, light, fresh, sunshine red, very characterful, pine resin, herbs and smooth red fruits, beautiful Italian classic. Logorroico Rosso is a delicious red from this tiny producer on the Ligurian/Tuscan border 5 km from the coast. The new vintage of this delicious red has more depth and intensity than previous years, which gives it a more opulent feel. The texture is smooth, with a subtle salty twang from the mediterranean. It’s delicious freshness balances the richness and makes it a very classy red wine. The terroir and local pine and scrub are captured in the glass and bound up with delicious red fruits, notes of wild herbs and that lovely savoury saltiness on the finish.

Il Torchio is the name given to the traditional olive press to be found in every village along the Ligurian coast in the past.

The locals would all press their own olives at the same Torchio and distribute the virgin oil amongst themselves. Luigi Tendola always had such a press.  For generations at Il Torchio they been pressing the local olives in their home town of Castelnuovo Magra. The wine production came later when Giorgio took over from his father.  He started to bottle wines under the Colli di Luni appellation using local varieties Vermentino and the rare Vermentino Nero.

This was start but this tiny winery has been revolutionised by Giorgio's children Gilda and her brother Edoardo.  They are 4th generation wine makers and have taken the traditional wine making of their region and added a bit of funk! 

Nowadays at Il Torchio, the vines are farmed organically.  The wine making is natural with indigenous yeasts, steel tanks, and virtually no fining, filtration or sulphur. The wines are classic in flavour with just a little funky twist.  They are deliciously fresh and natural.  The unusual Logorroico from Vermentino Nero being is delicious with its resinous flavours and soft red fruits.  Have this with a classic Coniglio alla Liguriana.  The more well known Vermentino Bianco has just a touch of light skin contact.  It is ripe and soft, full of sunshine and vibrancy and perfect for Pesto Genovese.

The super cool labels designed by well known Italian artist Giorgio Musante, represent the vibrancy and youth of the wine makers and also the sunshine in the wine!

    Stunning fresh, sophisticated red wine. Get red berries of the palate and this wine opened up wonderfully after a couple of hours in a decanting. Won’t be the last time I buy this
