The Tenuta di Sesta 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 the best one for may years now, we decided to dedicate the Riserva to the fruit of this single vineyard. The vinerad has an excellent location on a rolling hill in the south part of the Montalcino territory where all the Tenuta di Sesta vineyards are located. The DUELECCI Riserva will be produced from the east part (EST) of the vineyard or in the west part (OVEST) depending on the season. The particulary bebbly soil on the east side is suitable for cooler summers, instead the richer richer soil on the west side brings out its best propertes during hotter summers. The character of the vintage will be defined directly on the label: Brunello Riserva DUELECCI EST or DUELECCI OVEST.
