Intro: Tenuta Buon Tempo stretches for 26 hectares, 12 of which cultivated as vineyards. About 5 hectares of these are devoted exclusively to Brunello di Montalcino. The vineyards are all situated around the villa and the modern cellar, at an average altitude of 350 m above sea level, with south-easterly exposure.
The main composition of the soils is Galestro marl and sandstone, with a rich presence of heavy stone and considerable variability even within a very short distance.
The only grape variety grown is Sangiovese Grosso, in that it is the finest expression of the typical characteristics of Montalcino and the only variety that can be contained in its most prestigious wines, Rosso and Brunello, which represent the estate’s entire production.


Description: Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Buon Tempo is made from grapes grown in vineyards where the yield per vine is very low, at a maximum of 1 kg, harvested entirely by hand into small crates.

Vinification: 24 months in 500 l French oak Tonneaux, 40-50% new wood, 18-24 months in 64 hl Slavonian oak vats, 6 months in steel tanks and 6 months in the bottle before release for sale.

Food Pairings: Roasts, game and medium aged cheese.
