Curiosities

In the middle of the second world war, the able man are in the front and working in the farms, to make sure their families, youths and senior will survive.

What they are producing is not enough to live in because of the few farmers employed.

There is also to think that government will require his substantial part of manufacturing.

Therefore, the black market begins to develop, for a pure survival matter. Everything is hidden and everyone is hidden.

The wine, exchanged in large wood cases made of chestnut containing fifty liters each, finds its perfect shelter, between helichrysim and shrubbery.

This wine resists well during winter time, but on summer all becomes complicated: beyond the helichrysum scent, the wine gains a high alcoholic concentration and a bitter flavour.

Nobody wants to buy a wine that undrinkable.

The sale of wine stops during summer time only to start again in winter.

With the Sardinian economic rise after the war, like in the rest of Italy, the use of Vermouth grows. Vermouth was a wine liqueur made years before by Vittorio Emanuele II of Savoia in a hunting lodge, where he was giving hospitality to his lover Rosina.

The young Silvio Carta, already managing the newborn homonym cellar, finds in Vermouth a recall at this smuggling wine, understanding immediately that the secret stays in the addition of sugar.

Elio produces Vermouth using Vernaccia and by continuing to apply the antique recipe until today and therefore, creating a unique product.
