Alta Mora is a winery from the Cusumano Family. 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. Alta Mora Etna Rosso is 100% Nerello Mascalese grapes – 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 rich fruit, firm tannins and vibrant acidity.

Wine is a ruby red color. You’ll detect aromas of spicy pepper along with black currant and hints of mountain herbs. The wine is intense, with well integrated tannins. Long finish. 92 Robert Parker/92 James Suckling/91 Wine Spectator!
