The Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino Docg Riserva has always been the final result of very careful
work in the three best Brunello vineyards of the estate.
As the DUELECCI vineyards has proven to be th best one for many years now, we decided to dedicatethe
Riserva Brunello to the fruit of this single vineyard.
The vineyard has an excellent locationon a rolling hill in the south part of the Montalcino territory where all
the Tenuta di Sesta veneyards are located. The DUELECCI Riseva will be produced from the east part
(EST) OF THE VINEYARDS OR IN THE WEST PART (OVEST) depending on the season. The particulary pebbly soil on the est side is suitable for cooler
summers, instead the richer soil on the west side brings out its best properies during hotter summers. The
character of the vintage will be defined directly on the label: Brunello di montalcino DOCG Riserva DUELECCI EST or DUELECCI OVEST.
