Collosorbo was founded in 1995 by Giovanna Ciacci from the division of her renowned family estate Tenuta di Sesta, founded in 1850. Drawing on the knowledge and traditions of the family, Collosorbo maintains the family crest as a tie to the rich and successful history it represents. The Ciacci family bottled their first Brunello di Montalcino in 1966, the year the Producers Association was established. That same year, their Brunello was given a DOC label.
Generational continuity exists today. As the general adminstrator, Giovanna runs the winery with her two daughters Laura, the enologist and viticulturalist and Lucia the argonomist who is also responsible for the commercial side of business.
The winery is located in the southern part of Montalcino, between Sant’Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell’Abate. 35 hectares of vineyards are located at an altitude of around 250 meters above sea level. 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.
