Tenuta Giorgio was founded in 1982, located in Castelnuovo dell’Abate in the south-eastern part of Montalcino in a unique position, at 400 meters above seal level on the top of a ridge. The vines cover 26 hectares and there are 26 hectares of olive groves. The winery is located near Castelnuovo dell’Abate in the municipality of Montalcino, not far from the Sant’Antimo abbey.
Tenuta San Giorgio is a gorgeous estate that is very much on the come up. As of the 2016 vintage, the winery is now the sister estate to Poggio di Sotto and the two now share the same winemaking team along with the consulting services of the uber-talented Federico Staderini.

Lots of ripe plum and fresh flowers on the nose follow through to a full body with layers of fruit and polished yet chewy tannins. Sort of dusty texture. Flavorful and delicious.

The San Giorgio 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Ugolforte is a little subdued when compared to the 2016 vintage, and it delivers broad aromas of plummy dark fruit, spice and crushed roses. The wine is mid-weight in texture, but there is a good amount of power packed within, thanks to the wine’s structure and its compact fruit.

Tightly wound, this red evokes cherry, raspberry, plum, iron and tobacco flavors, with a solid tannic spine giving this support and a firm grip on the lingering finish. Tips a wee bit to the tannins in overall harmony, yet this is complex and long. Best from 2025 through 2042.
