Tenuta di Collosorbo is an estate winery in Montalcino in Tuscany, Italy. Its main wines are Sant’Antimo Rosso DOC, Rosso di Montalcino DOC and Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. Tenuta di Collosorbo was started in 1995 (as Collosorbo-Vigna di Capraia) by Giovanna Ciacci from the division of her family’s estate, Tenuta di Sesta, which was founded in 1850 (Giovanni Ciacci got the other half). The Ciacci family always cultivated grapes, olives, and all types of grains. Giuseppe Ciacci bottled the estate’s first Brunello di Montalcino in 1966, the same year that Montalcino’s Producers Association or Consorzio was established and the estate’s Brunello was given a DOC label.
People: Today, Giovanna Ciacci and her two daughters run the winery, maintaining the family crest as a tie to the past. Giovanna takes care of the general administration of the winery. Laura Sutera Sardo works as both the enologist and viticulturist. Lucia Sutera Sardo, the agronomist, is responsible for the commercial side of the winery.
Rosso di Montalcino DOC: 2002 Light and a bit too much sugar (rainy season…) when tasted at Il Pozzo with Guelfo and Paola, Pepe, and Piera, ‘Kangaroo’ and Dante from Banfi on Thursday 20 Jan 2005.
