$29.99

Sold Out

Alcohol: 14.5%

Grape(s): 100% Sangiovese

Localization: Tuscany, Italy

Tasting Notes: An open bouquet that is generous, honest and soft. There is a nice frankness or simplicity to the wine, and that ultimately is its best quality.  There is a hint of ripeness here that recalls sweet or candied cherry. This is a medium-weight red that is not too thin, and certainly not too thick.

Notes: Aged in a combination of Slavonian and French oak casks (from 12HL to 54HL) for one year. Aged in bottle for eight months prior to release

Food Pairing: This Rosso offers good density and richness, making it a good choice for oven-roasted lasagna or ricotta-stuffed pasta shells.

The Domain: Tenuta di Collosorbo was started in 1995 by Giovanna Ciacci from the division of her family’s estate, Tenuta di Sesta, which was founded in 1850

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 the Producers Association was established and the estate’s Brunello was given a DOC label.

Nowadays, 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.
