“It is not possible to see more beautiful fields; there is no gully of land which is not worked to perfection, prepared for sowing. The corn grows lushly and seems to find in these lands all the conditions needed for it to prosper”.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson –
Between Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany lie the splendid landscapes of the Valdichiana.
Famous for the beauty of its villages and its excellent food, for almost two thousand years it has been a traditional destination for those seeking rest and refreshment in the beneficial waters of Chianciano Terme and San Casciano dei Bagni.
From the Etruscans to the Romans and the magnificence of the Renaissance, the Valdichiana offers an unequalled heritage of art and history.
Just a few kilometres apart, villages and small towns follow one another in a thrilling succession. From Montepulciano, pearl of the 16th century, to the rural aristocratic Cetona and the orderly maze of narrow streets of Torrita di Siena, the observer can travel back in time to discover a lost past.
Not just architecture, but also painting and literature make this land a popular favourite.
The soft outlines of its landscapes and the sunsets reflecting in the lakes of Chiusi and Montepulciano give these lands a fascination which conjures up the deep mystery of the Etruscan civilisation.
The land itself is steeped in culture and traditions which tell a story going back thousands of years where the “culture of the beautiful” comes together with the “culture of quality and goodness“.
The Valdichiana is also famous for its wine and food traditions.
It is the land of the Chianina “fiorentina” steak, strictly barbecued and still today processed by hand with great passion.
Not just meat, but also fruity-flavoured extra-virgin olive oil made from hand-picked olives and pecorino cheese from pure sheep’s milk coming from the sheep grazing on our hills.
The verdant vineyards on our hills produce fine Nobile di Montepulciano and Bianco Vergine Valdichiana with its notes of tropical fruit, now another symbol of this land.
HISTORIC LAND OF CHIANINA BEEF
For thousands of years, the Valdichiana has been associated with Chianina cattle farming. To protect and continue the tradition, San Giobbe sells only PGI certified Chianina beef, a guarantee for consumers of the origin of the meat.
