The Brunello Montalcino Docg Riserva Duelecci Ovest 2015 from Tenuta di Sesta is gorgeous from start to finish, boastig a rich and dark alluring display of crushed cherris and brown spice, hinting at balssmic, notes of sage, licorice and flowery undergrowth. It's silky and supple in the mouth, yest packed full of energizing acidity enlivening its tart red hints of blackberry fruit. It turns grippy and youthfully structured towards the close, yet not overwhelmingly so. Sweet herbs, tobacco and hints of dark chocolate linger over a coating of rounded tannins, making for a wonderfully balanced finale.This will require a short stay in the cellar to fully even out.

The tENUTA DI SESTA 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Docg Riserva Duelecci Ovest 2015 is only made in the best years. The wine represents a special selection of fruit that can either come from the ''ovest'' (west) or the ''est'' (east) side of the Duelecci site, depending on th weather. The soil are very rocky on the east side, making that parcel better in the cool vintages. They are thinner on the west sid, and the grapes here perform better in the warm vintages. Ther' s little doubt, I thinsk, that sunny 2015 vintage would draw its fruit from the sunset side. This is an immediately attractive and generous expressin that doles out dark fruit followed by spice, earth, candied orange and wilted blu flower. To the palate, it delivers a broad and powerful performanxce, although you don't get same etched or suoer focused charcteristics that we was in 2016. That slightly softer approach makes this a great choice for your favorite steak dinner. a mere 4000 bottles were made.

This wine sources its fruit from a moderately high parcel that measures 13 hectares and is perched 400 meters in elevation. The soil here are thin and drain well, with a mix of calcareous and shistous terrain. The Tenuta di Sesta 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is fermented with ambient yeasts in stainless steel and later ages in various sized nottle made with Slavonin oak. This very natuaral and traditional approach allowas for those expressive vintage aromas to shine bright. This 2016 Brunello shows linear fruit with forest berry and wild cherry. You get all of that here with tight tannins, cola and mineral. Some 40000 bottles were made, and this wine delivers a clasic and straightfoward interpretation if this terrific vintage.

A tight, refine red with plum, berry, cherry and some cedar and lemon peel. It's medum-to-full- bodied with fine, tight tannins and fresh finish. Pretty, ripe fruit at the end. Drinkable now, but better in 2022.

Corpo pieno, tannini cremosi e perfettamente integrati ed un finale che coniuga in modo eccellente il profilo voluminoso e la sottile austerità dell' acidità vibrante. Emozionante.
Sarà meglio dal 2022.
Tenuta di Sesta's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a velvety and sultry wine that boasts classic lines and genorous fruit aromas. Released five years after the harvest, this expression of sangiovese shows aged and open-knit characteristics with died currant, forest floor, earth and plenty of blue flower. The wine yields softly integrated tannins with a pretty, mid-weight approach to the finish. You might try a traditional Tuscan dish of pappardelle alla lepre for this one.
