Tasting Notes
The 2017 Etna Bianco is a lean to medium-bodied wine with lots of aromatic intrigue. You get a big dose of wild herb (like sage) followed by fresh apricot, natural rubber and flinty mineral. This is a delightful white wine with long persistence and a very fresh, snappy style. Granny Smith apple, white almond, crushed stone and citrus are part of the bouquet. This is an excellent value wine.

General Info
Alta Mora is a newly founded estate owned by the Cusumano brothers, Diego and Alberto. In 2013, they purchased 15 hectares from the Benanti family on the north side of the volcano consisting of six hectares in Verzella (Contrada Pietramarina) planted to Nerello Mascalese and Chardonnay and nine hectares in Guardiola at 880 meters above sea level. The Cusumano brothers planted this vineyard with new vines, mostly Nerello Mascalese.
