SYMBOL OF ETNA VOLCANO
SYMBOL OF ETNA VOLCANO
Signum Ætnæ has centuries-old roots, but looks to the future.
Signum Ætnæ is a red wine produced from Nerello Mascalese grapes, a native vine typical of the Etna area, and from other relic varieties.
The vineyard from which Signum Ætnæ comes is made up of ungrafted plants with an average age of over 150 years, attested and documented by dendrochronological analysis by the University of Palermo.
This means that these are “sacred” plants that have resisted the attack of phylloxera, the aphid that devastated European viticulture at the end of the 19th century.
In the Verzella district, on the northern slope of Etna, the most important active volcano in Europe, Firriato discovered and safeguarded the vineyard from which the Signum comes, which for this reason we consider a rare and precious treasure.
Each bottle of Signum Ætnæ is a precious gem, an inevitable presence in a collection of wine works of art, a rare piece with a limited, registered and attested edition and with a traceability system that we can consider unique in the current panorama of the wine world.
The survivor of the phylloxera
Among the Cavanera Etnea estate’s vineyards, there is a rare and precious treasure: a pre-phylloxera vineyard. There are long-lived, centenarian plants, creatures that are full of history which time has forged and brought to us
Etna Signum Ætnæ Reserve consists of these more than 100-year-old plants, which are the pride of the Etnean production of Firriato, that vinifies the grapes of Nerello Mascalese, an endemic cépage of the Etna zone, and other relic varieties in about 2 hectares of vines on ungrafted foot, a pre-phylloxera parcel, whose plants were planted before the arrival of the aphid on Etna in the early twentieth century.
This precious Etna Riserva comes from vineyards, bred according to the traditional Etnean bush system at 650 meters on the north-eastern side of the volcano, dating back to the second half of the 1800s, with plants of an average age of over 150 years certified by the University of Palermo, which testifies to the centuries-old vine culture on the most active volcano in Europe.
