Rich aromatic intensity with a nice balance of red fruit, liquorice and spices and smokey hints in the background. A long and fruit forward finish.
Izadi, Rioja Reserva
£20.80 Per Bottle
Izadi is based in Villabuena in Rioja Alavesa, the highest part of
Rioja. The hillside winery (whose precipitous slope allows for gravity
assisted production) was founded in 1987 by Gonzalo Antón as a
modern breakaway from the traditional style of wine produced by
other members of his family. As his son Lalo, who now runs the
estate, says: “the whole concept of Izadi really started around
wanting to produce wine to satisfy the needs of our friends over a
meal”. Izadi produces modern, international wines that are true to
their roots and a natural expression of the area.
