2011 Muga Rioja Riserva Especial
Producer: Bodegas Muga
Region: Rioja, Spain
Blend: 65% Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo
Bodegas Muga was officially founded in 1932 by the Muga family, who at that point had spent several decades working as viticulturists in Rioja Alta. At the time, the Mugas were in the negociant business of buying, blending, and ageing wine. Soon after the foundation of the cellars they started production of their own estate grown wines. The winery is still owned by the Mugas and every single aspect of its operation is controlled and overseen by the family.
According to James Suckling, this wine has “A complex nose of dried strawberries with slate and white-truffle undertones. Hints of Spanish cedar. Full body, juicy tannins and bright acidity that follows through to a long, clean and earthy finish. A great wine that shows structure and complexity. Drink or hold. 95/100”
Our team says that Bodegas Muga is both one of the most traditional and and one of the most innovative wineries in all of Rioja at the same time
