2016 Rosso di Montalcino, Collosorbo, Tuscany, Italy, Rosso di Montalcino DOC
Tenuta di Collosorbo, founded by Giovanna Ciacci in 1995, was part of the Tenuta di Sesta estate. Tenuta di Sesta has existed since 1850. It was one of the first estates to produce Brunello when DOC Brunello di Montalcino was created in 1966.
Today, Giovanna Ciacci and her two daughters run the estate. The work is done by hand and in reasoned 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.
