  • About this winery

    Grupo Artevino was founded from the expanding ambitions of the Anton Family. Originally coming from the restaurant world, the family owns the Michelin starred Zaldiaran. Understanding the complementary nature of food and wine the Antons established Bodegas Izadi in Rioja and over the next decade they added Villacreces (Ribera del Duero), Vetus (Toro) and Orben (also from Rioja) with the goal to “make high quality wines from indigenous varieties”.

  • Tasting notes

    Deep, black cherry color. Aromas of red fruit embodied with toffee oaky hints from the aging in French barrel revealing a sweety and fruity wine on the mouth. Reminiscences of ripen fruit and liquorice. It offers a pleasant and soft aftertaste.

    Always a good value in Ribera and cropped from a fresher year, the 2016 Pruno has notes of licorice, dark berries and even some fresher red fruit. It has abundant, fine-grained tannins that require powerful food.

    Smoky and loamy earth notes frame a core of black cherry and plum in this firm, dense red. Balsamic acidity balances muscular tannins, which yield to a floral, minerally finish.

    Huge blueberry character, but also huge, dry tannins. On the finish, however, this tug of war resolves itself to a surprising degree and the final impression is of freshness. Drink or hold.

    This is the kind of wine that is making folks flock to Spain. It is so nicely drinkable with New World sensibility yet Spanish elan. It has mild but very pleasant even aromas of ripe berry/plum fruit, vanilla, violets and subtle herbs. It is medium-full bodied, quite smooth and well integrated, with some youthful tannin. Comes together very nicely; with a certain sense of comfort.
