Collosorbo’s 65-acre hillside vineyard benefits from its proximity to the moderating influences of the Mount Amiata and the Orcia River, which ushers in cool air from the Mediterranean Sea, scarcely 25 miles to the west. Comprised of 100 percent Sangiovese from the estate’s finest vineyards, the 2010 vintage offers liqueur-like aromas of smoky dark fruits, wildflowers and a whiff of leather. There are few Montalcino wineries with as noble or as long a history as Collosorbo. The Ciacci family has been involved in winemaking in the Montalcino area since the late 1800s.
The family expanded their holdings, between the ancient abbey of Sant’Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell’Abate—unquestionably some of Montalcino’s finest terroir—over the years until in 1995, it was split among different parts of the family. Collosorbo was born from this division, having originally been part of the historic Tenuta di Sesta estate.
Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino 2010
In the last decades, Brunello di Montalcino has undergone a general evolution in quality, and has made a name for itself throughout the world. In fact, Brunello di Montalcino was the first Italian wine to obtain the Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (D.O.C.G.) designation. It is exclusively produced, aged and bottled within the confines of the town of Montalcino in the province of Siena, using grapes from the Sangiovese species, locally called Brunello.
Ruby red color with slight garnet hues resulting from ageing; intense and persistent perfume, with notes of red fruits jam; a smooth, velvety flavor with evenly balanced tannins, intense and persistent with spice notes and a hint of liquorice; harmonious and elegant on the whole.
"Coffee and chocolate aromas signal this exotic and fragrant red. The cherry and plum notes are almost afterthoughts, while spice, leather and tobacco flavors come to the fore, with vivid acidity through the lingering finish.

Brunello di Montalcino
Located in central Italy’s Tuscany region, the town of Montalcino is 130 miles northwest of Rome and 25 miles southeast of Siena. It is home to one of Italy’s most prized and expensive wines: Brunello di Montalcino. Born to be a wine, Brunello has become a legend. It was created by some winemakers of Montalcino, in the heart of Tuscany, toward the end of the 19th century. They were looking for a red wine of exceptional quality and a long ageing period to accompany wild game, roasted meats, red meat and aged cheeses. And they obtained a wine which was destined to enter into the enological hall of fame, overflowing the chalice of Bacchus with joy.
