San Giovanni d’Asso is a frazione of the comune of Montalcino, province of Siena, Italy. It was an independente comune until 2017. It is located about 80 kilometres (50 mi) southeast of Florence and about 30 kilometres (19 mi) southeast of Siena in the area known as the Crete Senesi.
The hamlet is overlooked by large Castle, now home to a large White truffle museum, and there is a festival celebrating the rare and fragrant tuber each year. The historical centre also houses the churches of San Giovanni Battista (pieve) and San Pietro in Villore, both of medieval origin.
