The company is located on the Chianti hills at a height of 250 meters above sea level. The property extends over 60 hectares and is divided into two: the agricultural production area and the farmhouse. The production area is that of Chianti Montespertoli DOCG, in the South East area of the Province of Florence.
The vineyards occupy 13 ha and have an average age of 15 years, trained by Guyot and spurred cordon, with a planting density of 5000 plants / hectare. They are mainly made up of native vines: Sangiovese with five different clones in various locations, Colorino, Canaiolo, Pugnitello and Malvasia; as well as international varieties such as Viognier, Merlot and Petit Verdot planted in such a way as to “Tuscanize” them.
The Farm Le Fonti a San Giorgio applies the principles of integrated agriculture, with the complete abandonment of herbicides and chemical fertilizers, in order to safeguard the territory.
From the 2020 harvest we are certified organic.
Piera Giovannelli‘s goal is to maintain a heritage of 50 years, re-evaluate the native vines as a form of respect for the territory by increasing the work in the vineyard and combining the traditional systems with the help of new processing techniques, in the largest respect for nature.
