Tenuta di Collosorbo was started in 1995 by Giovanna Ciacci after the division from her family’s estate, Tenuta di Sesta, which was founded in 1850. Her ancestors have always been cultivating grapes, olives, and all types of grains.
Giuseppe Ciacci bottled the estate’s first Brunello di Montalcino in 1966, the same year that the Producers Association was established and the estate’s Brunello was given a DOC label.
Today Giovanna runs the winery with her two daughters, maintaining the family crest as a tie to the past. She is in charge of the general administration. Laura Sutera Sardo works as both the enologist and viticulturist. Lucia Sutera Sardo is responsible for the commercial side of the business.
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 located at an altitude of about 250 meters above sea level.
The terrain, protected by the surrounding hills and nearby Mount Amiata, is influenced by the Mediterranean Sea and its warm and well-ventilated climate. These characteristics make this area particularly eligible for the cultivation of Sangiovese.
The soils are mainly of calcareous clay which results in wines with fine and complex aromas, good acidity and optimal extracts.
