Description

History

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.

Grapes used

Nerello Mascalese 100%

Production method

The grapes, mainly Nerello Mascalese, are harvested by hand and carefully selected to guarantee the highest quality. After a prolonged maceration on the skins, the vinification takes place in concrete tanks and oak barrels, without the use of chemicals or enzymes. The wine is then aged in oak barrels of different capacities for at least 12 months before being marketed.

Alcohol content

13.5%

Tasting notes

Intense garnet red colour. On the nose notes of wild berries, blueberry, mulberry and blackberry jam, also present the classic notes of Mediterranean scrub, forest herbs and graphite. In the mouth it is full-bodied, elegant, slightly sapid, rich, enveloping and soft, the scents perceived on the nose remain. The finish is long, pleasantly spicy.

Possible combinations

In combination it is perfect with red meats and game, but also various cold cuts and aged cheeses.
