The largest volcano in Europe is the place where the brothers Diego and Alberto Cusumano have chosen for their challenge: to create wines that are able to express the quality and character of a unique territory. After years of research in the area, in April 2013 the unrepeatable opportunity presented itself to acquire the first three districts on the northern slope of Etna. An ever-evolving project, which began with the reconstruction of the traditional dry-stone walls of the terraces of Guardiola, a district whose astonishing beauty embodies the motivation and inspiration which gave its name to the entire project: Alta Mora. The cabin was designed to have the utmost respect for the grapes and their integrity, allowing for considerable energy savings thanks to the natural thermal insulation and the use of energy from biomass. Made with natural local materials such as lava and earthenware, it integrates perfectly with the uncontaminated nature of the surrounding area. Cool in summer and warm in winter.
Nerello Mascalese 100%
The Alta Mora Etna Rosato 2021 Cusumano is a rosé wine produced in an artisanal way on the slopes of Etna, in Sicily. The grapes, mainly Nerello Mascalese, are harvested by hand and carefully selected to guarantee the highest quality. After a short maceration on the skins, the vinification takes place in stainless steel, without the use of selected yeasts, to preserve the freshness and vivacity of the wine. The wine is then aged in the bottle for a few months before being marketed.
Soft pink color reminiscent of the color of coral. On the nose notes of white flowers and small red fruits such as blueberry and raspberry, many citrus notes of grapefruit and pomegranate, the sapidity and sulfurous notes of the volcano are perceived. In the mouth it is delicate, full-bodied, fresh, harmonious and balanced.
It is very refreshing, suitable for hot summer evenings, but it is also perfect in combination with vegetable-based first courses or fish-based second courses.
