Bottle size and vintage
The flagship of the winery, the Izadi Crianza is made with Tempranillo grapes from vineyards around 45 years old located in the triangular area between Villabuena, Samaniego and Ábalos. Izadi Crianza is a harmonious wine providing a perfect example of the splendid Rioja crianza wines as well as offering us the elegant character of wines from this region. A red wine blending effortlessly the juiciness of ripe fruit with the spiced and toasted notes of cedar and smoke thanks to its time spent ageing in American oak.
Izadi Crianza is undoubtedly a wonderful example of concentration, balance and personality in a well-defined style; a wine with a delightful medium-intensity ruby-red colour and unctuous legs in the glass. Intense aromas combine red fruit and liquorice with wooden notes from its ageing process. Harmonious and balanced in the mouth, a perfectly-integrated creaminess from the oak allows us to feel the fine grains of tannins on the tongue. A little darker than many traditional crianza wines, it finds a balance where ripe fruit is enjoyed but not to excess while a more modern sensation thrills the palate with delicate spicy and herbal, smoky and lactic hints elegantly accompanying a measured juicy texture. A long and lingering after-taste of fruity and floral flavours transports us to the vineyards where the whole process of creating this wonderful and contemporary red Rioja began.
If you are looking to try the new Rioja, wines which look to the future with ambition while remembering their traditions, it is hard to find a better example than the Izadi Crianza.

In 1987, Gonzalo Antón, in conjunction with a group of friends and business associates from Vitoria, decided to set up an innovative project in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa. Thus Bodegas Izadi came into being, situated in the triangle formed by the towns of Villabuena, Samaniego and Ábalos, the triangular motif on its labels, and with the clear objective of giving maximum expression to the fruit of that particular location, that natural environment so well-loved (Izadi mean...
