Silvio Carta Vernaccia di Oristano Riserva 1968

Silvio Carta

One of Italy's most obscure, but also most unique wines, Vernaccia di Oristano is the legendary oxidative wine of Sardegna.  Silvio Carta is one of the masters of the style.  The flavors range from Sherry-like nutty/brininess all the way to almost passito-like dried fruits, and the finish is dry.  With over 50 years under its belt, this 1968 is a true singular experience.  Absolutely amazing.
