The winery Masseria Setteporte is located in a very unique place: on the south-western slope of the Sicilian vulcano Etna, in the town of Biancavilla, within the Etna D.O.C. area. A unique location that creates expressive and rustic wines. Rustic, mineral, at times even herbal, but with a smooth and generous fruity core. This is the essence the Etna Rosso from Masseria Setteporte, produced with grapes from thirty-year-old vines which dig their roots deep into the volcanic soil of Mount Etna.
Producer Information: Masseria Setteporte
The winery Masseria Setteporte is located in a very unique place. on the south-western slope of the Sicilian vulcano Etna, in the town of Biancavilla, within the Etna D.O.C. area.
Here, viticulture dates back to ancient times. The Portale family, owners of Masseria Setteporte, have passed their winemaking tradition down through generations.
The farm was first modernised by Ferdinando Portale who turned the classic bush trained vineyards into a vertical trellis system, which is more suitable for modern growing techniques.
The vineyards are cultivated on terraces facing south, at an altitude between 650 and 800 m a.s.l. where the vulcanic soil, the high altitudes and the typical Mediterranean climate create a unique habitat for wines which excel in elegance and feature an intriguing aroma profile as well as superb drinkability.
