Firriato launches blockchain and NFT for the 2015 Signum Aetnae

3 min read


It is the symbol of Etna now recognized throughout the world. It may be Nerello Mascalese or Nerello Cappuccino or an excellent white, but wine is now a distinctive feature of the volcano. And it is precisely called Signum Aetnae pre-phylloxera 2015, the wine produced on Etna by Cantne Firriato.

Firriato’s initiative moves in two directions: anti-counterfeiting and therefore the guarantee for collectors and the registration of the entire history of the bottle in the blockchain. And it concerns precisely the Signum Aetnae, a red from Nerello Mascalese grapes (black grape variety, prince of Etna) coming from a pre-phylloxera vineyard of approximately two hectares with plants over 150 years old – vinified in blend in Contrada Verzella (on the northern slope of the volcano) together with other relic varieties of the volcanic territory. «The Signum Aetnae 2015 – explains Federico Lombardo di Monte Iato, chief operating officer of Firriato – opens the doors to a new vision of digital wine, ready to pioneer in a new world but which, we are convinced, will become normality within a few years: we wanted Signum Aetnae to inaugurate the new course, because it summarizes within a glass all the essence of Firriato, that is, tradition, innovation, uniqueness, quality, in all its expressions.”

Each example of Signum Aetnae 2015 has three different codes inside its back label that make it unique in the world: the first code indicates the limited edition and the number of the bottle owned, because it is a very small production capable of expressing few examples (2,436 bottles produced); the second code certifies the authenticity of the specific bottle of Signum Aetnae by inserting the code on the dedicated site, you are certain that you are in possession of an authentic and legally owned bottle. Then there is a third code, hidden under a scratch paint, it is generated in random mode which allows the owner to register the bottle and become its official owner. By registering on the signumetna.it website you become part of the “Signum Club” which guarantees the owner “a series of exclusive privileges”.

For each bottle of Signum Aetnae there is the possibility of purchasing its Nft, defined as S-Nft (Signum Nft) and of accessing a series of high added value services, essential for every true collector of wine works of art.

Also in this case the owner will have the right to write the entire traceability and history of the wine in blockchain, starting from the harvest up to future sales, including transfers of ownership; with possession of the collector’s bottle you will also come into possession of an Etna-themed artwork, created by Firriato with a different subject for each vintage. Furthermore, you can request, at any time, a professional appraisal that certifies the expertise of the wine and the topping up/recorking 15 years after bottling. «These innovations – says Federico Lombardo – help to guarantee the customer that they are faced with an authentic bottle of Signum Aetnae: a very important aspect on the one hand for the protection of Made in Italy and on the other as a guarantee seal for collectors more demanding.”
