Twenty-five hectares of vineyards managed entirely in compliance with sustainable agricultural practices, the soils of which have been united since their formation, originating from the Chianti massif, by a large quantity of compact limestone resting on a sandstone base.
This type of soil restrains the vigor of the plant, lengthens the vegetative cycle, and enhances the structure of Chianti. Our vineyards range in altitude from 280 to 480 meters above sea level and are situated in three different subzones within the municipality of Gaiole in Chianti.
Futuro wine is made from grapes grown in the best vineyards at 450 meters above sea level.
