Collosorbo is a winery built on history and tradition, committed to upholding quality as well as having a deep dedication to the natural environment. Rooted in Montalcino, the Ciacci family has been living there since 1850.
Giuseppe Ciacci was one of the original founders of the Consorzio del Brunello. His Brunello, which he started bottling in 1966, was awarded DOC status that same year.
Collosorbo was founded in 1995 by Giuseppe’s daughter Giovanna Ciacci from the division of the family estste Tenuta di Sesta. She, along with her two daughters, manage all aspects of Collosorbo – Giovanna as General Manager, Laura, the winemaker, enologist and viticulturalist, and Lucia, the export manager.
The winery has 35 hectares dedicated to vines in the southern part of Montalcino. Since their 2019 vintage, they have been a completely organic winery. In addition to native grapes, they also produce some Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Merlot and Petit Verdot that are utilized in their blends.
The proximity to the sea allows for a warm and well-ventilated microclimate – perfect for the cultivation of Sangiovese. Calcareous clay and iron particles in the soil produce high quality wines with good notes of minerality. Meticulously managed grapes are aged in French and Slavonian oak to add a hint of aroma without masking the unique taste of Sangiovese.
The proud commitment to quality and innovation is ongoing at Collosorbo.
