Description

Muga Aro is reddish colour with violet hues, a deep robe and very intense aromas on the nose, in which the well-integrated oak predominates – revealing its high quality- with cloves, vanilla and lactic notes. The fruity sensations dominate, with reminders of red fruit and very ripe wild berries (blackberries, redcurrants, wild strawberries) and floral notes (violet petals). Spicy notes from the ageing with cinnamon and black pepper. With the very well-integrated wood which denotes a high quality in its selection. On the palate we find a wine with very good backbone and acidity, fresh and with a presence of rounded tannins. The finish is very long. It has great cellaring potential and a persistent, full, elegant aftertaste.

Muga always use the finest materials and are open to new techniques that provide greater quality without losing authenticity. To produce each of their wines, they opt for traditional procedures like natural fining. The only cellar in Spain with a master cooper and three in-house barrel-makers, Bodegas Muga owns 620 acres of vineyards but it also has control over 370 acres owned by vine growers in the area. The vineyards are located on the foot of the Montes Obarenses, within the area called Rioja Alta. The site climate is exceptional due to, on the one hand, the singular geography and orientation of the vines and on the other hand, the surrounding climates – Mediterranean, Atlantic and Continental climates are combined harmoniously thus creating a perfect climate for grape growing.
