2019 Rosso di Montalcino, Collosorbo, Tuscany, Italy, Rosso di Montalcino DOC
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 bottled the estate’s first Brunello di Montalcino in 1966. Nowadays, Giovanna Ciacci and her two daughters, Laura Sutera Sardo (winemaker) and Lucia Sutera Sardo (sales and marketing) run the winery.
The winery is located in the southern part of Montalcino, between Sant’Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell’Abate. The 35 hectares of vineyards are protected by the surrounding hills and nearby Mount Amiata, is influenced by the Mediterranean Sea and enjoys a warm and well-ventilated climate. These characteristics make this area particularly suited for the cultivation of Sangiovese.
The work is done by hand and in organic agriculture.
The Rosso di Montalcino grapes come partly from the same vineyards dedicated to Brunello production and partly from newly planted vineyards. Aging in French and Slovenian oak barrels for 1 year, then bottled for at least 6 months.
