Why buy it?

Great territorial expression of Sangiovese in a vintage that will be remembered as one of the best vintages ever in Montalcino; great elegance both in the aromas and in the mouth, where it expresses great crunchiness and tension; bottle to drink in one gulp immediately but also with the prospect of improving year after year for many, many more years. Highly recommended.

History

Collosorbo is a Montalcino winery, founded in 1995 following the division of the Sesta estate. The property has belonged to the Ciacci family since 1850, which produced its first Brunello in 1966. The company is managed today by Giovanna Ciacci and her two daughters, Lucia and Laura. The estate is located in the southern area of ​​the appellation, between Sant’Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell’Abate, with 30 hectares of vineyards located approximately 250 meters above sea level.

This wine is produced only in the best years. The grapes are harvested by hand in small baskets and a double selection takes place both in the vineyard and on a sorting belt. After a light destemming, an alcoholic fermentation is carried out in steel with long maceration on the skins thanks to indigenous yeasts. The refinement takes place in Slavonian oak and French oak barrels from 25 to 54 hectoliters for a period of about 3 years, with further refinement in the bottle for 8 months.
