Etna Rosso DOC
2014
2013

Alta Mora is a new winery from the Cusumano family.  These grapes are grown and harvested on the slopes of the active volcano, Mt. Etna, in Sicily.  It has been a lifelong dream for the Cusumano brothers to build a winery among these black, fertile and dynamic soils. The Alta Mora name represents the great heights of the vineyards on the mountain and the dark, black volcanic soil. The volcano itself is nearly 11,000ft high and vineyards are planted up to 4,000ft high. Alta Mora Etna Rosso is 100% Nerello Mascalese grapes - which are indigenous to Sicily and the predominant red grape of Mt. Etna. Many wine enthusiasts compare this wine to a Nebbiolo or Pinot Noir. The deeply colored, thick-skinned grapes contribute gritty tannins and vibrant acidity.
