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 GinVermouth 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.

Tasting notes

Identity and character.Enveloping and fresh, a silky caress of flavour and fullness on the palate. Citrus scents are at the forefront and intertwine with notes of Mediterranean scrub, together supporting the sweet and silky burst of Sardinian saffron.Deep golden yellow.

To portray Sardinia by capturing its heart and soul in a bottle: this is the challenging task that led to the creation of Boigin Saffron with DOP Sardinian saffron. The latest addition to the gin family, it is a full, potent and voluptuous spirit. It conveys to the nose and palate the aromas of one of Sardinia’s most fascinating and typical areas, the Medio Campidano, enriching an already well-loved alchemy. The recipe Elio Carta created with DOP Sardinian saffron gives a Boigin that retains the main characteristics of its young, fresh and supple character but is inflamed with an irresistible golden colour. A spirit with a strong local identity, in line with contemporary trends in the world of gin, which is seeing the appearance of more and more products that encapsulate their place of origin. It is a tribute to Sardinia and proof of the great love that binds Silvio Carta to the island and its outstanding qualities, which make it unique in the world.
