James Suckling 95
"Beautiful aromas of black cherry and apricot. Full body, exotic and intense. A wealth of fruit yet remains vibrant and firm. Extremely focused. Long finish. Great follow up to the 2012. Drink in 2021."

"Palish red. The intensely floral nose (violet, peony, iris, rose) also offers aromas of red cherry and incense. Dense but juicy, showing a sappy quality, but plenty of extract nicely frames the red fruit and candied violet flavors. The long finish is given added punch by strong underlying minerality. Very attractive wine of impeccable balance. Well done.
-- Ian D'Agata"
The Brunello di Montalcino is obtained from the meticulous selection of Sangiovese grapes from the estate’s best vineyards. It is the product of diligent and thorough fieldwork and of focused operations in the wine cellar which preserve the essence of the Sangiovese grape and exalt the qualities of a wine which every bottle reflects over history and time.
A classically poised, precise Sangiovese from the region’s most expressive terroirs. Aged in a combination of Slavonian and French oak casks (from 12HL to 54HL) for two years; aged in bottle for one year.
Collosorbo’s 30 hectares of south-facing vineyards lie on the road to Sant’Angelo in Colle from Castelnuovo dell’Abate. The estate, always property of the Ciacci family since its founding in the 1850s, was once part of the larger Tenuta di Sesta farm, which was composed of 180 hectares of mainly woodlands, olive groves, wheatfields, and pasture. These days, the family focus is wine, and though the new generation has taken over the reins at the winery, the focus remains on traditionally made Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino.
Collosorbo’s estate vineyards combine three of the region’s soil types: red clay, gray ‘galestro’, and sandy limestone – a very rare occurrence in Montalcino. Vineyard practices at the estate are meticulous, with the object of attaining the healthiest and most mature grapes possible, so that a minimalist approach can be employed in the cellar. Grapes are harvested by hand into small crates, and are then lightly crushed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel. All of Collosorbo’s wines are matured in neutral oak foudres, allowing a slow maturation in the family’s cool cellar, built by hand beneath the walls of the estate’s ancient castle.
At the helm of the estate is a power trio of three passionate and knowledgeable women: owner, Giovanna Ciacci and her daughters: winemaker-oenologist, Laura Sutera Sardo, and agronomist and marketing manager, Lucia Sutera Sardo.
