Wine 1940

When expressing a judgement for a vintage as old as 1940, it makes sense to evaluate each bottle individually. In the 40s in Italy the production of wines was mainly aimed for the immediate consumption, with little to no attention to the refinement in the barrel nor in the bottle. There are only a few winemakers who have followed the teachings of the French ... and successively bottled their best crops to ensure a proper aging of the wine. The wines of 1940 are casual findings, the bottles of „old“ wine have often been forgotten in the cellar, as who decided to store them usually didn’t know that a vintage wine would be a rarity and a valuable piece of collection, and so fortunately many wines have survived until now.
A real old and drinkable wine from 1940. Every wine lover is fascinated by a perfectly aged and rare red wine with a world-famous origin.

Wine vertical

A bottle of wine of the year 1940 is a rarity and unique finding. The taste of the wine, which is defined by its old age, can be on the limit of enjoyment for some. Therefore, an interesting alternative to buying a wine as old as ones anniversary, can be to recreate the years of the jubilee with three younger wine bottles, which together are as old. The tasting of the years through single steps is a charming present for any wine lover. Wine experts love these kind of vertical wine tastings: they emphasize the different phases of these valuable wines, and how their color and taste both change when ripening.

SW16519 1940 Vinho do Porto Colheita Reserva Burmester
Port

Classic old vintage port. The 1940 Port matured purposefully and reliably in wooden barrels and was bottled in 1990 - as is usual with trustworthy producers, this information is also on the label.

Port is the name given to a sweet wine originating exclusively from the Douro Valley. The name comes from the port city of Porto, from which port was shipped mainly to England from the end of the 17th century.
In the 17th century, the idea was developed to stop the fermentation of the wine by adding 80 percent wine distillate. This stopped the sugar from fermenting further and the wine retained its sweetness. Through this so-called fortification, port has an alcohol content of between 19 and 22 percent by volume and is more durable.
After the Tawny Port has been stored for a good two years under exclusion of air in the large barrel, it is transferred to a small wooden barrel, the pipa, with a capacity of 550 litres. Here it breathes (oxidises) more strongly and changes its colour to tawny. The contact with the wood also changes the taste to aromas of nuts, dried fruit, etc. Standard tawnies are filtered and bottled after 6-7 years.
Port is usually available as a vintageless fortified wine. Only exceptionally good vintages, such as 1940, are declared as vintage Port and allow the production of a Tawny Port or even a Vintage Port, i.e. a vintage Port.
