Winemaker Notes

Izquierdo displays an intense and clear red color with excellent viscosity and violet reflections. On the nose, red fruit with white flowers, wild strawberries, blackberries, prunes and cherries. Almond flower fragrances, cinnamon and vanilla round out the nose. Entry is sweet and fresh with a full-body. An excellent balance of alcohol, tannins and acidity with wild berry notes and a persistent finish.

A blend of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Antonini Izquierdo is a bit more reticent and structured. Intense, layered and complex, it too requires extended cellaring and should be at its peak from 2018-2040. This is the debut wine in this journal from Antonino Izquierdo. It appears to be a name worth remembering.

Antonino Izquierdo, Spain
Biodynamic farming, which follows lunar cycles ,and skilled labor make up the foundation for the excellent quality grapes used to make our handcrafted wines. No weed killers, systemic products or chemical fertilizers are used in the process. Our vines, which are more than 40 years old are situated on plots of poor soil.

Antonino Izquierdo is a wine made in the vineyard, with minimal intervention. This is achieved through low-yield productions (three or four bunches per vine) and organic fertilizers of animal origin. Individual grapes are removed from the clusters before being transferred to the selection table via gravity flow, where six people perform an additional grape-by-grape selection. The fruit is then taken into temperature-controlled 15-ton-capacity stainless steel tanks for fermentation.

Ribera del Duero, Spanish wine region, is located in northen Spain’s Castilla y León region, just a 2-hour drive from Madrid. While winemaking in this area goes back more than 2000 years, it was in the 1980s that 9 wineries applied for and were granted Denominación de Origen (D.O.) status. Today, more than 300 wineries call Ribera del Duero home, including some of Spain’s most iconic names.

Notable Facts Ribera’s main grape variety, Tempranillo, locally know as Tinto Fino, is perfectly suited to the extreme climate of the region, where it must survive scorching summers and frigid winters. Low yields resulting from conscientious tending to old vines planted in Ribera’s diverse soils types, give Ribera wines a distinctive depth and complexity not found in other Tempranillos. Rich and full-bodied, the spice, dark fruit and smoky flavors in a bold Ribera del Duero will pair well with roasted and grilled meats, Mexican food and tomato-based sauces.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
