1971 Wine and Port Gifts

1971 wine and Port Gift Suggestions

1971 was an outstanding year for Italian wines. One of the best vintages of the 20th Century! Very poor for ports but good for Armagnac and Madeira. 1971 produced a good crop of Bordeaux but was overlooked in favour of the legendary 1970 vintage that preceded it.

1971 Italian wine would make a perfect gift for a 50th Anniversary.

Considered to be one of the greatest vintages of the 20th century for Italian wine, excellent growing conditions during 1971 produced a small crop of rich, full bodied wines that have aged gracefully and will last for many years. These wines would make an excellent 50 year old wine gift for a birthday or anniversary. In Piedmont, Barolo and Barbaresco are outstanding with a high level of consistency. In Tuscany, the best results were in Chianti where this year was officially rated a 5-star vintage. Many of the wines have shown exceptional ageing qualities. It was also a good vintage for Brunello. A 1971 Italian wine would be our recommendation for a superb 50 year old wine gift for a special anniversary or birthday.
