Itxas Harri, located in the village of Monteagudo in Navarre, is a project from Ignacio Ameztoi and his long-time friend and winemaking partner, Iñaki Guelbenzu. Wines from Itxas Harri defy standard logic, as the Spanish Basque Navarre region lies inland, yet the wines have the restraint and freshness with lower alcohol levels associated with the coastal areas. Beltza is an elegant, lower-alcohol, refreshing wine that pairs beautifully with the grilled artichokes and vegetables for which Navarre is so famous. On its own, or paired with a Mediterranean meal, Beltza is fruit-forward, bright, and crushable.
