SILVER MEDAL- Rosso di Montalcino Doc 2016
SILVER MEDAL- Brunello di Montalcino Docg 2013
94 POINTS- BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO DOCG RISERVA DUELECCI OVEST 2012 Satured red. Deep aromas of pomegranate, sexy spices, red cherry, sweet spices and camphor. Fresh and juicy, offering dense flavors and sandalwood, graphite and juicy red cherry. Finishes long and clean, with outstanding cut and clarity. Strikes me as a much more serious, deeper win than 2013 Brunello Docg. This wine is the first vintage made from a Vineyard planted in 2011.
91 POINTS- Brunello di Montalcino Docg 2013: Medium- dark red, this is actually lighter than the 2016 Rosso Doc from tenuta di Sesta. Strong notes of tobacco, wet underbrush and botanical herbs camouflagered fruit and balsamic aromas. Enters bright and juicy, then more austere and steely, reveaqling a slightly bitte twist to th floral red berry flavors. Cellar this for five or six years and see if it fills out.
Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2010. The 2010 Riserva is a beautiful wine with wonderful elegance and class. This precise Brunello opens with aromas of red berries and cherries woven together by licorice mineral and hints of dark chocolate. On the palte this medium-bodied and well balanced with a lovely inner sweetness which carries on through the silky finish. Allow this some time as it continues to evolve with each second in the glass. ( Best 2017-2028) - February , 2016 (JD)
Brunello di Montalcino 2011. The 2011 Tenuta di Sesta Brunello bursts opens with an array of sweet red fruits followed by floral, anise and sweet spices.A medium -bodied Brunello, with lovely balance and fine silky tannins leading up to the sleek finish. This is accessible now, but will benefit from a few additional years in bottle to futher develop. ( Best 2017 - 2026) - March, 2016 (JD)

BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO DOCG 2009- VINO DELL' ECCELLENZA
The Tenuta di Sesta 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Docg presents evolved aromas of dried fruit, leather, spices and pipe tobacco. The wine opens to a dark garnet color with reddish colors that resemble brick or terracotta. These characteristics give the wine a savory and rugged quality that will appeal to those who love the tastes and flavors of aged sangiovese. Despite the wine's untamed personality, it does offer subdued finesse in the mouth. This wine gives you the typicity of sangiovese as well as the elegance of an Italian classic.
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino shows aromas of candied fruit and cassis that are tight and precious. This wine does not share the wide and expansive personality of many of the other Brunellos produced in this warm vintage. Instead, this expression is more introspective and timid. Those delicate berry notes are followed by cola, balsam herb and licorice root. The wine is streamlined and simple and this comes as a pleasant surprise given the much meatier and heftier characteristics of its peers.
BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO 2010 TENUTA DI SESTA: The elegant 2010 Brunello di Montalcino shows an impressive degree of inner grace and harmony. This wine expresses itself articulately with the softest tones. No part of its message is too loud. In fact, it whispers seductively with small fruit aromas, forest bramble, root beer, dried herb and balsam notes. The effect is feminine and finessed. Polished tannins make way for fresh acidity and long persistency. This Brunello sees 30 months of aging in large oak casks and is fermented with indigenous yeasts.
Aromas of wild berry, thyme and a whiff of cellar floor lead the nose on this structured red while the full bodied palate offers dried black cherry, white pepper, sage and anise.
