The San Giorgio estate is situated in an outstanding location, overlooking the Orcia valley and exposed to the climate of Mount Amiata.
The natural elements co-operate to offer to this area a very favourable dry climate, caused by the Mediterranean breeze coming from West and with powerful temperature uctutions between day and night, especially at the end of summer.
The Estate extends its property to over 142 hectares of which 26 ha are under vine and 26 ha are olive groves. The vineyards are positioned on steep rocky slopes, at an altitude ranging between 250 and 400 mt. facing east and south- east. The training system is “Cordon Spur” with a very low yield per hectare.
Thanks to the peculiar position of the vineyards and the variety of the terroirs this grape has plenty of space to express its complexity and personality. The average age of the vines is around 20 years. During the harvest the grapes are selected and picked manually.
