Collosorbo’s 30 hectares of south-facing vineyards lie on the road to Sant’Angelo in Colle from Castelnuovo dell’Abate. The estate, always property of the Ciacci family since its founding in the 1850s, was once part of the larger Tenuta di Sesta farm, which was composed of 180 hectares of mainly woodlands, olive groves, wheatfields, and pasture. These days, the family focus is wine, and with the new, women-owned generation crafting traditionally-made Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino.

Collosorbo’s estate vineyards combine three of the region’s soil types: red clay, gray ‘galestro’, and sandy limestone – a very rare occurrence in Montalcino. Vineyard practices at the estate are meticulous, with the object of attaining the healthiest and most mature grapes possible, so that a minimalist approach can be employed in the cellar. Grapes are harvested by hand into small crates, and are then lightly crushed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel. All of Collosorbo’s wines are matured in neutral oak foudres, allowing a slow maturation in the family’s cool cellar, built by hand beneath the walls of the estate’s ancient castle. 

At the helm of the estate is a power trio of three passionate and knowledgeable women: owner, Giovanna Ciacci and her daughters: winemaker-oenologist, Laura Sutera Sardo, and agronomist and marketing manager, Lucia Sutera Sardo.

The 2019 Brunello di Montalcino opens with a bouquet that blends savory herbs and worn leather with crushed wild berries. It's softly textured and round, with a pretty inner sweetness and juicy red fruits cascading under rosy inner florals. The 2019 tapers off long and gently tannic, as a bump of residual acidity maintains an energetic feel.
