Poggio San Giorgio - Norcia (PG) - Umbria
Why we chose them
Poggio San Giorgio is one of the ten producers belonging to Prosciutto di Norcia IGP Consortium. It is a modern but artisan company situated on Agriano plateau, in the area of Norcia: to reach them you have to take a small road in the middle of the countryside and go up to 980 meters of altitude, among fields and nature. "This is the air that our hams breath" - told us Alessandro Perticoni. Since 1975 Perticoni family takes care the processing, maturing and marketing of hams. At the beginning the company was located in Assisi but few years ago Daniele and Alessandro decided to move to Norcia, in their new production plant on Agriano Plateau to combine their family experience with Norcia traditions. Every week Poggio San Giorgio produces about 1000 legs, half of them dedicated to the production of Prosciutto di Norcia IGP. At the beginning of June we visited the company and we got really impressed: in a small production they manage to set up perfectly all the rooms needed for processing hams. A modern plant, provided with external probes that allow the exchange of air to explore the favorable climatic conditions of the Agriano plateau.
