Izadi Rioja Reserva 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

WINE:<br/> "Intense ruby red and clean, with lightly developed hues. On the nose the fruity aromas of the Tempranillo blend with vanilla and smoky notes from wood aging. Elegant and balanced in the mouth, with an honest, stimulating attack." -Importer<br/><br/> WINERY:<br/> "Located in Rioja Alavesa, Izadi aims to produce wines that express the character of the local varieties. They are developing their wines to be fresh with a touch of modernity - without forgetting tradition. The Anton Family founded Izadi in 1987 after years of running vineyards in Villabuena de Alaba. The Antons also own a one star Michellin Restaurant (Zaldiaran) in the hamlet of Vitoria."<br/><br/> "Transformation of the winery happened in 1997, when Don Gonzalo Anton hired Mariano Garcia (wine maker for 30 years at Vega Secilia). Together with Angel Ortega (wine maker for Izadi), they created what we now recognize as the Izadi style: robust yet refined, modern and international. The word Izadi means Nature. The vineyards of Izadi are located deep in the heart of Rioja Alavesa, in the triangle formed by three villages, Villabuena, Abalos and Samaniego. The triangle pictured on the label of Izadi Reserva represents these three villages." -Importer
