"Sweet berries and walnuts with dried flowers and blueberries on the nose. Full-bodied with very tight, refined tannins that are focused and impressive. I like the texture and definition to the wine, as well as the complex aftertaste. Serious wine that’s nice to drink now, but with three to four years of age, this will be very special. Try after 2022."
"In 1987, Gonzalo Antón, together with a group of friends and business people from nearby Vitoria, began a groundbreaking project in deepest Rioja Alavesa. The village of Villabuena de Alava, where his family already grew grapes, was chosen as the location for the innovative bodega which would focus on making fine wine. Gonzalo’s knowledge of hotels and restaurants soon made Izadi one of the most highly-regarded wines in gastronomic circles. At the same time, the introduction of new winemaking techniques and continuous improvements in quality set a house style over time. "The Antón's have been the face of Izadi since 1987, when their passion for wine was combined with their love of good food. All of this in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa." Shiny ruby color. Rich aromatic intensity with a nice balance of red fruit, liquorice and spices and smoked hints in the background. Elegant and round in the palate with a long afterstate that brings back floral and fruity memories." -Importer
