Tenuta Di Sesta Brunello Di Montalcino Due Lecci Est Riserva DOCG

Owned and run by the Ciacci family, Tenuta di Sesta is recognized as one of the historical estates in Montalcino. The Ciacci’s rely on traditional ageing in big oak barrels and renewed vineyard management based on climatic changes and in favor of the territory to obtain wines that best express the territory of Montalcino. The Brunellos in particular are marked by exotic perfumes and rich complexities.

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 Due Lecci vineyards has proven to be the best one for many years now, they decided to dedicate the Riserva to the fruit of this single vineyard. The vineyard 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 Due Lecci Riserva will be produced from the east part (EST) of the vineyard or in the west part (OVEST) depending on the season. The character of the vintage will be defined directly on the label as Brunello Riserva Due Lecci Est or Due Lecci Ovest.
