"Dark red. Sweet Oriental and Indian spices complement ripe red cherry and raspberry nectar aromas and flavors. Tactile and dense, with a youthful chewy quality to the noble tannins, this finishes long, concentrated and full. A remarkable showing for a 2014 Brunello; one of the best of this vintage, in fact. -- Ian D'Agata"

Wine Spectator 92
"Savory aromas and flavors of wild thyme, eucalyptus and juniper mesh effortlessly with the essence of ripe cherry and plum in this chewy red. Builds in intensity to a long, beautifully harmonious finish. Best from 2020 through 2035. 5,000 cases made, 1,300 cases imported. BS

James Suckling 92
"Cherries and dried flowers with hints of dried clovers and lavender. Medium body, firm and chewy tannins and a fresh and vivid finish. Drink in 2019."

Wine Enthusiast 91
"Fragrant purple-flower, ripe plum, camphor and cake-spice aromas lift out of the glass. Smooth and savory, the bright palate offers juicy Marasca cherry, cranberry and licorice alongside fine-grained tannins and racy acidity. It's balanced, vibrant and already almost accessible. Drink 20202025."

The Wine
The Brunello di Montalcino is obtained from the meticulous selection of Sangiovese grapes from the estates 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 regions 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.

The Estate
Collosorbos 30 hectares of south-facing vineyards lie on the road to SantAngelo in Colle from Castelnuovo dellAbate. 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.

Collosorbos estate vineyards combine three of the regions 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 Collosorbos wines are matured in neutral oak foudres, allowing a slow maturation in the familys cool cellar, built by hand beneath the walls of the estates 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.

Collosorbo

View all from Collosorbo
CollosorboCollosorbo's 35 hectares of south-facing vineyards lie directly across the road from Ciacci Piccolomini, between Sant'Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell'Abate. The estate, which totals 180 hectares of mainly woodlands, olive groves, wheatfields, and pasture, is bordered to the south by the Orcia river, and to the east by Monte Amiata. The family acquired their holdings over many years until 1995 when the estate was split among different parts of the family and Collosorbo (originally part of the Tenuta di Sesta estate) was born!
