Description

Selección comes from the best parcels carefully harvested and singled out as the most representative of Izadi’s essence and personality.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (2019): “Here the 2019 Selección is more expensive than the Reserva (in some places it’s cheaper than the Crianza, which makes it slightly confusing). I see better integration of the oak here than in the 2018 Reserva, and they achieved good balance with the blend of 82% Tempranillo, 11 % Graciano, 4% Maturana Tinta and 3% Garnacha that reached 14.5% alcohol but feels balanced. It fermented by plot and village in 10,000-liter tanks and matured in French oak barrels for 14 months. 121,000 bottles and 500 magnums produced. It was bottled in July 2021.” 92 Points

ORIGIN
Extremadura is so named for its climate – extreme and harsh, with hot and dry summers and cold winters. The region produces bold, full-bodied wines due to this dry sunny weather that provides optimal ripening conditions and consistent sugar levels that are responsible for producing the wine’s potential alcohol content as well as shaping the depth of its flavours.
