Silvio Carta Mirto Rosso Ricetta Storica

Sardinia

Description

Mirto is the traditional liqueur of the island of Sardinia. It is crafted from the hydro-alcoholic maceration of leaves and berries—or just the berries—of the myrtle plant, which are dark, herbaceous, and have a medicinal quality. Traditionally, after maceration, sugar or honey is added to the extracted liquor in order to sweeten it.
 
Hand-gathered myrtle berries grown metres from the oceanside are used for this infusion. Carta’s recipe uses 1.2kg of Sardinian myrtle berries per litre of distillate (about 1 mirto bush of berries per bottle). Normally, commercial brands use only 300-400g of berries per litre.
 
The taste is akin to putting a handful of ripe berries in your mouth. Ripe fruit dominates on the palate, with a smooth and refined balance between sweet and sour berry flavours, then finishes with dry Mediterranean herbs and a slightly tannic texture.
