Mount Etna in Sicily is an exceptional place for wine-growing: complex microclimate with a significant excursion between day and night, extremely fertile volcanic soils, high altitudes. All contribute to making this small production area in the South of Italy one of a kind in the wine world. Such a unique place calls for its very own grapes. For the red varietals, Nerello Mascalase is king, in second place Nerello Cappuccio. As for the white varietals, Carricante grape is native to the area.
The philosophy of Torre Mora is one grape, one territory. We are inspired by the perfect match between the native varietals and Mount Etna, and we are passionate about making wines which tell with every sip the story of ancient native grapes thriving on the slopes of an active volcano.
