Vineyard: The grapes for the Larrosa Negra are selected from old vineyards of Garnacha which grow on chalky clay soils with pebbels at approximately 700 masl. Grapes are harvested manually.

Winemaking: After destemming, the grapes are gently pressed. Fermentation and malolactic conversion are carried out in stainless steel tanks. Ageing takes place in French (50 percent) and American (50 percent) oak barrels, half of which are two years, the other half three years old.

In 1987, Gonzalo Anton, together with a group of friends and business people from nearby Vitoria, began a groundbreaking project in Rioja Alavesa. The village of Villabuena de Alava, where his family already grew grapes, was chosen as the location for the innovative bodega, which would focus on making fine wine. Gonzalo’s knowledge of hotels and restaurants soon made Izadi one of the most highly-regarded wines in gastronomic circles. At the same time, the introduction of new winemaking techniques and continuous improvements in quality set a house style over time. When Lalo Anton joined the company in 2000 it expanded and began to increase its exports. Projects, such as Finca Villacreces (D.O. Ribera del Duero), Bodegas Vetus (D.O. Toro) and Orben (D.O.Ca. Rioja), were undertaken under the name Artevino.

Clear, bright ruby in appearance with vibrant red fruit perfume of raspberry, strawberry and redcurrant together with floral notes of lavender and wild herbs. High in alcohol but low in acidity with soft tannins. Pleasantly balanced by some ageing in older oak.
