Setteporte, Etna Rosso 2015
Nerello Mascalese 95%, Nerello Cappuccio 5%
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. Intense ruby red colour with a pleasantly fruity bouquet layered with red fruit and wild berries. The taste is dry, harmonious, elegant and persistent.
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.�
