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.

BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO DOCG RISERVA DUELECCI OVEST 2015 OTTINE 96 POINTS DA WINE ADVOCATE 2021
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.
