1949 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: A poor year for the Oporto ports. Not a declaration year, we would recommend perhaps buying a "70 Years of Port" gift set such as the Taylor's 70 Years of Tawny Port , a gift box comprising a 30- and a 40- year old Tawny Port to add up to 70 years. These sets make the perfect 70 year old wine gift for a 70th birthday or anniversary.
 
Italian: 1949 wine exhibits a good vintage for most of the Italian regions. The long-lived Barolos are still drinking well today.
 
Bordeaux: The finest 1949 wines are still in full blossom, displaying remarkable richness and concentration. This is one of the quartet of remarkable vintages of the late 1940's - '45, '47, '48 and '49. Renowned wine critic Robert Parker states that this is the greatest of the four vintages possessing greater balance, harmony, and fruit than the 1945's and more complexity than the 1948's. In short the wines are magnificent!

1949 Cantine Antonio Ferrari

Sale

Il 49 di Antonio Ferrari Special offer was £195 | Now only £189

The Il Barone ‘49 shows a deep garnet colour. For something so old it is still fresh with a touch of oxidation on notes of black cherries, chocolate and espresso infused with sweet spices. The wine has a long finish. This is a wine from the 1949 wine harvest. Fermentation was arrested before complete leaving a high residual sugar content which has preserved the wine. The wine then went into large old Slovenian casks for ten years and then stored in tanks where it has remained until bottling this year. Antonio Ferrari was a wine merchant and negociant in Piedmont who in the mid-20th century developed an interest in the grapes of Puglia.
