Silvio Carta - Bitter Roma Rosso 1L
Defined by master distiller Elio Carta as Bitter Della Pace ("the bitter of peace"), this aperitif is another expression of the unique botanicals of the Sardinian countryside. With a typical ruby red colour, it has an overwhelming nose of aromatic herbs: rosemary, thyme, sage and eucalyptus, accompanied by orange peel, tamarind and cloves. Dry but enveloping, with a decisive and inviting taste, it has an incisive bitter note and a very long finish of citrus peel. Simply perfect for an aperitif, served with ice and a slice of blood orange. Also perfect as a component for your Negroni.
Silvio Carta is one of the most influential companies in Sardinia, and has earned a great reputation beyond regional borders thanks to the great quality of their liqueurs and spirits. At the helm is Elio, son of the founder Silvio, a talented oenologist-turned-distiller with a scrupulous respect for Sardinian tradition. The range of Carta's gins and liqueurs showcase Elio's expressive imagination and generous talent as a master distiller. The amplified quality of the products along with attractive packaging design present an alluring modern interpretation of elemental Sardinian recipes.
Elio is meticulous about the quality of the botanicals used in every infusion, which are always used fresh, and less than one hour after being harvested. Elio is also a steward of the land, knowing how to sustainably use wild plants and monitor growing cycles to ensure each flower, leaf or berry is harvested at its best and handled most delicately. The motto that guides all the company's work is contained in the simple expression "harmony of nature", a historical title of many of Carta's advertising campaigns, and which translates into some essential points: respect for ancient traditional recipes in order to preserve the flavours and aromas of a time and place, while preserving precious environmental health.
