“Age and glasses of wine should never be counted”

"Age and glasses of wine should never be counted” is a popular wine saying that has been printed on many gift items. “"Anni e bicchieri di vino non si contano mai."(Age and glasses of wine should never be counted.)” was cited in English print in 2011.

“Anni e bicchieri di vino non si contano mai” was possibly cited in Italian print in 1926 (this Google Books date may be incorrect) and it was also cited in a book published in 1962. The authorship is unknown.
