Bottle size and vintage
The modern cuvée of one of the Rioja's most traditional wineries stands out due to its concentration and great fruit expression, as well as its elegance and balance. Torre Muga has been Muga's response to wines of a more contemporary style.
Produced, as only to be expected, from grapes predominantly of the Tempranillo variety and with macerations that can last for up to three weeks, Torre Muga spends three months in large tanks made of American oak, followed by eighteen months in new French oak barrels, before being bottled without filtration.
An intense Picota cherry colour, it exudes toasty aromas of oak, whiffs of freshly ground coffee and of very ripe black fruit. In the background, suggestions of truffle and undergrowth can be discerned. It's intense and concentrated on the palate, with tons of spicy black fruit and hints of pencil lead, with underlying traces of charcoal and cocoa. Powerful, complex and luscious right up to its harmonious and elegant finish. An amazing Rioja, one to fall in love with. Decanting is advisable.
- Optimum serving temperature:Between 16ºC and 18ºC
