The Story

The Etna DOC production area is an exceptional place for viticulture. This area is distinguished by some unique features which, when combined, generate a complex microclimate: a loose and fertile volcanic soil, at high altitude characterized by an important daily thermal excursion. A unique place that stands out for its special bond with the typical vines of the area: Nerello Mascalese, the main vine of the slopes of the volcano for the reds, and the Carricante for the whites. Torre Mora has 15 hectares of vineyards located 380 meters above sea level, which enjoy a favorable exposure that, combined with the lava nature of the land, give extremely distinctive, mineral and spicy characteristics to the wines.


The age of the vines varies between 12 and 15 years. Due to the steep land on which the vineyards are located, the training systems are spurred cordon in the small flat areas and the sapling on the terraces. The soil, purely volcanic, characterized by an acidic pH, is very fertile. Despite the shallow depth (30-40 cm deep before reaching the basalt layer), the soil is extraordinarily mineral and rich in traces and microelements brought by volcanic eruptions.

Cauru is a blend of two different crus located in Contrada Alboretto Chiuse del Signore Linguaglossa village, and Rovittello on the Northeastern side of Mount Etna. The Cauru name Sicilian for hot, refers to the internal heat and energy of the volcanic soil. The unique climatic conditions as well as the mineral rich land unleash marvelous perfumes and create this incredibly elegant wine.
