Tenuta Buon Tempo Rosso di Montalcino 2019
Sangiovese Blends | Italy
With their Brunello di Montalcino getting all the big press, get in on the simply perfect, delicious "baby Brunello" while you wait. The 2019 vintage is shaping up to be an epic vintage approaching the level of the "once in a generation" 2016s. We promise this will satiate all of your sangiovese dreams – the bright red Marasca cherries, cool plums, ripe and flowing across the palate with excellent freshness and balance (a hallmark of the ‘19 vintage), and finishing with floral and clove-y spices, a touch of mint, a dash of citrus...just amazingly delicious.
We have direct-imported Tenuta Buon Tempo for years now, and today is the day to stock up on what you’ll be drinking all through the fall!! Sangiovese lovers, Tuscany lovers, just plain wine lovers – get ready to gobble up this Italian goodness while it lasts. We certainly are!
About the Producer
Since the early 1920s, Tenuta Buon Tempo has occupied 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 (it’s the warmer side). The winery stretches for 28 hectares, 14 of which are cultivated as vineyards. The company name aims to highlight the pleasant peace and quiet that characterize this splendid valley - Buon Tempo being the Italian translation for “good time”.
