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.
Intense yellow, the scent of a land dried by the scorching sun; ripe, bold and luxuriant fruits that colour the countryside. The lemons of Sardinia are the soul of Limonello – one of the leading liqueurs of the Silvio Carta company – strongly desired and made by Elio to celebrate thirty years of liqueur production such as Mirto and Limoncino.
A glorification of taste, scents and colours of the Sardinian lemons. Intense, lively and pleasant both straight over ice and at room temperature combined with tonic water and champagne. Limonello is versatile and fresh, ideal for an aperitif or as a digestive.
