Vigna di Sangiovanni estate lays on a rolling hill around the small town of San Giovanni d’Asso small hamlet part of the town of Montalcino (12km), 35 km to Siena, at an altitude of 310 m, which highlights the natural beauty of this place. The property is also close to some many beautiful small medieval villages and towns as, Montisi 4 km, Buonconvento 15 km, Florence 120 km. The villa is near the lovely villages of the Val d’Orcia: Pienza, Montalcino, San Quirico, Monticchiello and Bagno Vignoni. They are all less than a half hour’s drive away.
An ancient castle here dominates the region from atop of a hill that slopes downwards to the Asso River. The region is hilly, vegetation is sparse, and pale gorges and gullies create a setting reminiscent of a lunar landscape that will change its colours depending on the season. The climate is Mediterranean and boasts mild winters and hot summers when temperatures vary significantly from day to night. Vigna di Sangiovanni estate is fully surrounded by an extensive 6 hectares vineyards with its amazing flavours and colours. It originally belonged to a far larger estate, owned by an old Senese family, and first appeared in the land registries of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany in the early 1600s. In 2002 the estate was bought by the current owner, ship owners who had been active in the wine industry in Piedmont and Tuscany since the 1960s and who took care to embellish and make really precious this villa refurbishing it taking in pieces from the farest corners of the world. In 2003 the first vineyards were planted.
Just 600 mt of a good not paved road will lead you to the property. In the garden an infinity pool takes place next to a pergola that is equipped with table and chairs. The solarium is equipped with sunbeds and chairs. From the parking and from the villa you'll have access also to a typical courtyard featured by old fashioned bricks stones with lush vines.

Living here is a wonderful and interesting experience both in terms of the magnificent views and from a winemaking point of view.
