Description

The aromas and flavours of this white wine display the warmth and character of the special territory where the vines grow: the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna. Lots of minerality, depth and personality. Straw yellow colour with green hues and an intense, fruity and delicate bouquet with a hint of Sicilian apple. The taste is dry with a fragrant acidity providing length and balance.

  • Delivery Information

After the grapes are harvested they are gently pressed. Fermentation takes place at 18-20 �C in steel tanks.�Ageing in steel tanks, followed by a minimum of 3 months in the bottle.

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. In 2002 Piero Portale decided to carry on his father�s project, taking the farm from its original 12 ha to 27 ha, 16.5 of which are already planted with vines.�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.�Masseria Setteporte is a certified organic winery.�
