This Rioja reserva has a very expressive nose. Muga Selección Especial Reserva suggests aromas of red berries, strawberry compote, red apples and Amarena cherries, underpinned by aromas of underbush, black pepper, clove, vanilla, smoke, leather and roasted coffee.
Elegant and fresh, this Reserva by Bodegas Muga has a meaty and also supple body. Sweet, silky tannins and pleasant acidity. Deep mineral notions, remembrances of fine leather, cocoa, vegetables and wild berries. Long, gentle finish.
