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.
Smooth and floral with notes of almond, honey and green apple that fade into a slight sensor of vanilla and chocolate.
Delicate, refined, with floral notes that recall the raw material.
Amber with gold tinges due to ageing.
It is a Grappa obtained by the distillation of different types of pomaces that were previously left fermenting together for about 30/60 days in order to create a unique product. The fermentation days depend on various factors, one of which is the initial sugar concentration. Then, the pomaces undergo discontinuous distillation with the cut of heads and tails in a copper still. The distilled product ages naturally for over a year in small chestnut barrels.
