Characteristics of Muga Crianza

Muga Crianza is a red wine from Rioja, made by Bodegas Muga. This winery has a winemaking tradition of over 80 years in Haro (La Rioja Alta), the city with the highest concentration of wineries in the world.

Muga Rioja Crianza is a true blend made with 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, Mazuelo 7% and 3% of Graciano, all typical varieties of Rioja.

The grapes come from vines planted in terraces on tertiary calcareous clay.

For its preparation, Muga Crianza undergoes fermentation with indigenous yeast in oak tanks. Subsequently it is aged for 24 months in barrels made in the winery itself.

Finally, before bottling, Muga Crianza is clarified with natural egg and once bottled, rests for 12 months.

Tasting notes Muga Crianza

Sight Intense cherry red, with purple hues and an abundant tear. Nose The nose is dominated by black and red fruit. Blackberry, currants and plum. Leather with fine floral notes, lightly toasted flavours and spices appear. Black pepper, cloves, cocoa, toast. Taste Tasty entry into the mouth. Predominant ripe fruit with memories of aging. Vanilla and cream. Fleshy, broad, balanced and structured. With excellent acidity and gentle tannins. Aftertaste is long and very persistent.
Sight Dark and intense cherry colour with ruby red edges and purple reflections. Clean and very bright. It has a medium robe and abundant tears. Nose High intensity nasal aromas, dominated by intense notes of ripe red and black fruit that gives way to aromatic floral notes and some emerging toasted aromas. When it opens up, the wine gains in complexity and the notes of fruit get mixed with nice spicy touches, more expressive toasted notes, balsamic touches and hints of leather, coffee and cacao. Taste This red wine shows a long, tasty and fleshy mid palate with dominant notes of ripe fruit on an intense background of notes provided during the ageing wrapped in creamy aromas of vanilla. A balanced and structured wine. Excellent acidity and very pleasant and integrated tannins. Long and very persistent finish.

Taste This red wine shows a long, tasty and fleshy mid palate with dominant notes of ripe fruit on an intense background of notes provided during the ageing wrapped in creamy aromas of vanilla. A balanced and structured wine. Excellent acidity and very pleasant and integrated tannins. Long and very persistent finish.
Sight Intense cherry colour with maroon edges. Very bright wine with good tears. Nose Elegant and intense aromas. The toasted and roasted notes gain power on first nosing, over the aromas of ripe red and black fruit. When it opens up, the aromas are balanced and some spicy, liquorice, leather, mocha and chocolate notes are also felt along with subtle balsamic and mineral touches. Taste Very strong and voluminous attack and a tasty, nice, meaty and fresh mid palate. The notes of fruit dominate on the wooden aromas since the notes of juicy and ripe black fruit are more powerful. Noble and well integrated tannins are also felt and although they are not unpleasant they still need to round out a little more. Long and persistent finish which leaves fruity and spicy sensations. Very fine, elegant and balanced wine from La Rioja.
Sight Very bright, pure ruby colour. Nose Red-berry aromas which evolve towards toasted, charred-oak and coffee nuances. Taste Balanced on the palate. A deep, intense, flavoursome wine. The fruit, previously pure finesse, now becomes potent. An elegant, persistent finish.
