Tenuta Buon Tempo is an estate located in the far south of the territory of Montalcino, near Castelnuovo dell’Abate, in an area with a particular vocation of winegrowing. The company name aims to highlight the pleasant peace and quiet that characterize this splendid valley, Buon Tempo being the Italian for “good time”. The vinification takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with native yeasts and maceration of 2 weeks.
A third of the wine then spends 2 months ageing in 500 liter french tonneaux of 3rd and 4th passage and the rest of the wine ages for 12 months in large (65hl) Slavonian oak casks.
After natural clarification by decantation in stainless steel it is bottled and then rests for 2 months.
