Tenuta di Collosorbo was started in 1995 by Giovanna Ciacci from the division of her family’s estate, Tenuta di Sesta, which was founded in 1850
The Ciacci family always cultivated grapes, olives, and all types of grains. Giuseppe Ciacci bottled the estate’s first Brunello di Montalcino in 1966, the same year that the Producers Association was established and the estate’s Brunello was given a DOC label.
Nowadays, Giovanna Ciacci and her two daughters run the winery, maintaining the family crest as a tie to the past.
Giovanna takes care of the general administration of the winery. Laura Sutera Sardo works as both the enologist and viticulturist.
Lucia Sutera Sardo, the agronomist, is responsible for the commercial side of the winery.
An old traditional wine that is fresh and velvety, the grapes for the Rosso di Montalcino come partly from the same vineyards dedicated to the production of Brunello and partly from more recently planted vineyards. Pure Sangiovese with fruity aromas, notable structure and persistence, it is both an elegant and very versatile wine.
The Brunello di Montalcino is obtained from the meticulous selection of Sangiovese grapes from the estate’s best vineyards. It is the product of diligent and thorough fieldwork and of focused operations in the wine cellar which preserve the essence of the Sangiovese grape and exalt the qualities of a wine which every bottle reflects over history and time.
