Ripe red fruits, floral hint, spice of oak, vanilla touch
Founded in 1932, Muga is no stranger to 100-point scores for its flagship Aro red, and also wins high marks for its whole range. It's a remarkable cellar, embracing the region’s greatest traditions and combining them with the best of modern technology, all with a gentle hand. They even have a master cooper and three barrel makers to obtain the perfect match of fruit and oak. Using all hand harvested grapes from older vineyard terraces with poorer soils, this 2016 has impressive intensity, as well as freshness from the coolness of the sites. Always a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano, this Rioja is aged in new oak barriques, then in older, neutral oak and in bottle before release. A taste of finest Rioja. Ideal with lamb.
"A very pretty, manicured young red with plum, berry and dark-chocolate character. Delicious"
