Ancient Fernet-Branca... Drink or Display?

OK, I moved into a house eight years ago that was a summer cottage for an Italian family from San Francisco. They'd built it in 1948, and had owned it ever since. When they sold it to me, they left many unlabeled bottles of homemade hooch, and two sealed bottles of very very old Fernet-Branca.

OK boozehounds: Do I drink it, or display it? (I know, I know, with two bottles, I could do both, but what do you wise ones think? Is it still any good?)
