SILVIO CARTA MIRTO ROSSO DEL FONDATORE

RM193.00

Intense dark brown with bright, purple tinges. Multiple aromas. Apart
from the intense myrtle, it is possible to distinguish other aromas of
the maquis, aromatic herbs, bay leaves, sage and plum jam. All these
scents mix together in an elegant and enveloping myrtle hug that
stands out in the mouth, dominated by the plant notes, in a very
refined sweet-and-sour arm wrestling leading to a dry ending rich in
Mediterranean aftertaste.

Description

PRODUCTION
The ultimate Mirto that tells the story of an ancestral Sardinia: proud, florid, sweet and bitter, tasting is a dip in the Mediterranean maquis among aromatic herbs, sage and wild plum. Mirto del Fondatore was born to celebrate the 90th birthday of the patriarch.

It is known that myrtle is synonymous with Sardinia all around the world. Obtained only from berries or from berries with leaves, white or red – the recipe of this ancient liqueur has a history that is over 100 years old and peculiar to Sardinia – dating back to the early 19th century. At first, it was soaked in a mixture of spirit and water. Then, sugar or honey was added to make it sugary and pleasant in the mouth. But it is Silvio Carta’s family who enriched the recipe. In the terrible winter of 1939 – marked by frost and famine – the population of Baratili was saved from hunger thanks to that precious and abundant fruit: the myrtle. Thus to enhance the conservation of the berries, Elio Carta’s grandmother placed a handful of fruits in a measuring cup of Vernaccia spirit, which was already produced by the family: the first ever myrtle-based liqueur was born. With the Mirto del Fondatore, Elio wanted to pay tribute to his father for his 90th birthday.
