Tenuta Buon Tempo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Oliveto p.56 2016

14% abv

Vol- 75cl

‘Here’s a new discovery from Tenuta Buon Tempo. The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Oliveto p. 56 is showing nicely at this point in time, with dark fruit nuances and some budding hints of evolution with smoke, campfire ash and iron ore. The wine is named after a vineyard, or parcel number 56. It opens to a medium garnet appearance and shows immediate aromas of candied cherry, cola, balsam herb and red rose. Compared to the 2017 vintage Brunello, this Riserva is light and delicate, while showing lots of underlying power nonetheless. Production is 8,093 bottles’. 2023 – 2038

“Oliveto P. 56”, derives from the number in the land registry of the plot of land where the wineries oldest vineyard lies, with vines that are approximately 25 years old, and from the name of the old farm, founded in the 1940s. From this vineyard, situated at 350 meters above sea level, only the smallest top-quality bunches are selected, to produce – following a painstaking process in the winery – a wine that is complex and elegant but also richly structured and long-lived, which represents to the full the level of quality of the land.

The “P.56” Riserva is produced only in outstanding years from the point of view of the climate and the quality of the fruit, from a selection of less than 10% of the finest grapes from the oldest vineyards. Production follows the same philosophy as that applied to the other Brunellos, but extending the length of each phase and increasing slightly the use of new oak, in order to enhance the grapes’ potential to the full. The result is a wine of great elegance, structure and longevity which, over time, will express all the potential of the terroir as well as the perfect weather of the years in which it is produced.

Tenuta Buon Tempo is located in the far southern corner of Montalcino, called Castelnuovo
dell’Abate, an area with a unique vocation for winegrowing. The 26 hectare property is composed of vines, olive trees and woods and slopes down to the Orcia river on the border that marks the end of the appellation. In the early 1990’s, 12 hectares were chosen from the best area for planting vines. Farmed organically since the beginning of the project, the conversion was certified from 2018 after a few years of testing and seeing a consistent improvement in the quality of the fruit and the environment of soils, plants and air. These ambitious goals of proprietor Per Landin are applied with a combination of hard work in the
vineyard, investing heavily in the cellar and thanks to the collaboration of a dedicated team guided by Alberto Machetti with the help expert consultants Attilio Pagli and Stefano Bartolomei
