About the Wine
Tenuta Masseria Setteporte is situated on the southwest side of the Etna volcano, in the territory Biancavilla, within the Etna DOC area.
The viticulture of this side has a very ancient history and the Portale family has preserved the original characteristics for several generations. The modernization of the structures with the transformation of the ancient sapling into the espalier, a system that combines modern viticultural techniques with the vegetative-productive peculiarities of the Nerello Mascalese, is due to the initiative of the Notary Ferdinando Portale.
The turning point took place in 2002 when Piero Portale decided to continue the project started by his father, bringing the estate from 12 to 27 hectares, 16.5 hectares of which are vineyards. The vineyards lie on terraces facing south at an altitude between 650 and 800 meters.
The peculiarities of Tenuta Masseria Setteporte wine can be summarized in elegance and aromas combined with exceptional drinkability
The terraced vineyards are located on the southern side of Etna, in the territory of Biancavilla, between 650 and 700 meters a.s.l. Planted on lava sands in 2008 with south, south-west exposure.
