It was the early 1950s when Silvio Carta founded the eponymous company in Baratili San Pietro, immediately devoting himself to the most traditional of the local wine productions: Vernaccia di Oristano. An amber gold that embodies nobility and generosity, which immediately charms and conquers the palate.
The skilful vinification, the long resting in a barrel and the careful and loving care by the Maison Silvio Carta have made this incredible wine an authentic glory of Sardinian oenology.
Sixty years have passed since then, but Vernaccia still remains a family matter. But now there is more. After more than half a century, Silvio, together with his son Elio – the latter at the head since 1972 – still devote themselves to the production of the greater Vernaccia di Oristano DOC. However, thanks to a careful look towards innovation and the loving care of very deep passions, today the Silvio Carta company is also synonymous with Mirto ‘riserva’, London Dry Gin, Vermouth and other typical spirits distributed all over the world as precious examples of an ancient and luxuriant land: today, the world smells of juniper, myrtle and citrus fruits from Sardinia thanks to the excellence of Silvio Carta.
Viscous, explosive and attention-seeking upon tasting, it engages the whole palate and features a bold flavour that cleanses the taste buds and accompanies a very long finish.
A unique product which stands out in the bitters market. Wrapped in an artistic label with clear Futurist references, these Silvio Carta bitters contain a thousand scents of Sardinia and Mediterranean scrub. The white version is generous on the nose and smooth on the palate, making it a surprising wildcard for mixing. Served in a cold glass with a single large ice cube, it is a perfect aperitif for summer evenings, but it can also be the key ingredient for new versions of historic cocktails like the Americano, Spritz or Negroni Bianco.
