Red Wine Izadi Crianza 2018
Availability: In stock
This well-known Spanish red wine is produced by Bodegas Izadi, a brand of the Artevinos Group.
A varietal Tempranillo, Izadi Crianza is made from grapes coming from 70 hectares of grapevines 45 years on average. The vines are located at an altitude of 450 to 500 metres above sea level. Soils are composed of clay and limestone.
The grapes were harvested by hand. Once in the cellar, they were destemmed and crushed. Then this Crianza red wine completed both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
Afterwards, Izadi Crianza 2018 was aged for 14 months in American oak barrels and French oak barrels, 20% new.
Finally, this red wine from La Rioja was clarified with egg whites and gently filtered prior to its bottling.
Pair with meat dishes and hearty legume recipes.
The red wine Izadi Crianza is deep ruby with a garnet rim.
This varietal Tempranillo carries aromas of blueberries and damson, with hints of sweet spices, liquorice and smoke.
Elegant and lively, this Crianza of Bodegas Izadi has a great acidity, with some ripe tannins and a very fresh passage. Notes of wild berries and smoke, alongside remembrances of dry earth and spices. Long, clean finish.
