1971 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: No Vintage Ports were produced in 1971.
 
Italian: 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/
 
Bordeaux:


1971-wine-gifts
1971 was a very good wine vintage, whose only failing was to be overshadowed by the outstanding 1970 vintage. The crop size of the 1971 vintage was very small making wines of this year a rarity. Well-stored examples of wine are likely to remain mature for a few more years. Sweet wines such as Sauternes and Barsac were outstanding in this year and will last for many decades to come.

1971 Nebbiolo

Marchesi di Barolo
In Leather Effect Gift Box with Silk Liner

This long-lived 1971 wine from northern Italy displays red cherries, dark cherries, tar and slight dried rose notes. It is complex and layered with high acidity and medium tannins still present. Cherries on the palate too with a nice finish. Nebbiolo is a fickle grape famed as much for its pale garnet appearance as for its tannic character and produces some of the most perfumed and richly flavoured wines. Nebbiolo has a lovely earthy bouquet and the wines possess rose and anise scented aromatics and deep flavours of cherry, orange peel and subtle green herb tones as they age. This is a great food wine.

Dolcetto, 1971

New

Marchesi di Barolo

A native black grape variety of Northern Italy grown almost exclusively in the provinces of Cuneo and Alessandria in Piedmont. It is relatively easy to cultivate, although it is susceptible to fungal diseases. It ripens before Barbera and Nebbiolo and is often grown in high north-facing sites which would be unsuitable for Nebbiolo. The finest Dolcetto wines come from grapes grown on soils rich with white marls, especially those found on the right bank of the River Tauro. The wines generally are low in tannins and acidity and are usually fruity and fragrant, often with hints of almonds.
