Bodegas Izadi Rioja Reserva 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Izadi is based in Villabuena in the Rioja Alavesa, the highest part of Rioja. The hillside winery (the precipitous slope allows for gravity assisted production) was founded in 1987 by Gonzalo Anton as a modern breakaway from the traditional style of wine produced by other members of his family. As his son Lalo Anton says: “the whole concept of Izadi really started around wanting to produce wine to satisfy the needs of our friends over a meal”. Izadi produce modern, international wines that are true to their roots and a natural expression of the area, which is unhindered by the sort of deviant flavours that are all too common in Rioja. A 100% Tempranillo aged 16 months in American (65%) and French oak, the 2012 Reserva has blackberry and redcurrant fruit, with notes of cigar tobacco, licorice and savoury undertones. This is a medium to full-bodied wine, quite rich and concentrated in style, enjoyable now and over the next 2-3 years.
