The El Regalo Reserva of Bodegas Izadi from Rioja presents a dense ruby color in the glass. When swirling the glass, this red wine reveals a high density and fullness, which shows in church windows at the edge of the glass. This single varietal Spanish wine flatters the glass with wonderfully expressive notes of plum, morello cherry, blackberry and plum. These are joined by hints of black tea, gingerbread spice and oak.
On the palate, Bodegas Izadi's El Regalo Reserva opens wonderfully aromatic, fruit-driven and balanced. The finale of this youthful red wine from the wine-growing region of Rioja, more precisely from the Rioja DOCa, finally convinces with a beautiful finish.
Vinification of the El Regalo Reserva from Bodegas Izadi
The basis for the powerful El Regalo Reserva from Rioja are grapes from the Tempranillo grape variety. El Regalo Reserva is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, as this Spaniard breathes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. After the harvest, the grapes immediately enter the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Then fermentation takes place in small wood at controlled temperatures. After the end of fermentation, El Regalo Reserva is aged for several months in oak barrels.
