About Marchesi di San Giuliano
At San Giuliano, the fruit orchards have been organically managed since the 1980s. The clementines are hand-harvested during the last weeks of November, when the fruit is mature and at the peak of sweetness. The recipe for the marmalade has remained unchanged for generations.
