Izadi has been creating a buzz since its first vintage 20 years ago and can now claim to produce some of Rioja¿s top wines. If you enjoy the mellow, silken texture of oaked reds with ripe berry and rich mocha aromas, you¿ll enjoy this superb Reserva.
Izadi may be a young bodega compared to many in Rioja but it's certainly up there with the best in quality terms. Every aspect of its showpiece cellar is geared to producing the finest wine from top quality, old vine grapes. Wine magazine described the wines as a 'stylish, delicious, modern style'. Izadi's winemaker, the brilliant Angel Ortega, has also helped the winery achieve great heights ' Wine & Spirits magazine named it as one of the World's Top 100 wineries. The 2007 Reserva is 100% Tempranillo long aged in French and US oak barrels and particularly concentrated thanks to a low yield vintage and 50 year old vines. Its intense red fruit is infused with fragrant vanilla and mocha. Decant an hour in advance and serve with rack of lamb.
