A long-time client of Iron Gate, this consignor first became interested in wine when he attended a Wine Spectator’s tasting, and someone opened a 1988 Tignanello. The bouquet and palate were an amazing shock to his senses. He began collecting fine wine in 2008 and built his cellar shortly after that. Wines were purchased through the LCBO and SAQ and stored in a temperature and humidity-controlled cellar.
The wine in this lot has a score of 92 from Robert Parker and the following tasting note -The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vignaferrovia, a new bottling, is sweet, rich and layered in its fruit. This is a decidedly firm Brunello in need of a few years in the cellar to soften the firm yet refined tannins. Red raspberries, flowers and sweet spices are some of the nuances that emerge on the round, creamy finish. There is quite a bit of volume and richness, but the greater presence of oak has left the Riserva with some slightly oxidative qualities and less overall freshness than is typically the case here. I was very impressed with both Brunellos I tasted from Antinori this year. Stylistically the wines seem to be placing more emphasis on elegance over sheer power and the results are striking.
