Characteristics of Muga Aro

Aro is an excellent wine from Rioja produced by the winery Bodegas Muga. It is a modern, powerful and full-bodied wine which counts on this winery's wisdom and great tradition in the production of these classic Rioja wines.
It is the top wine of Bodegas Muga, and since it came out on the market, it has become one of the greatest modern wines from Rioja. For the production of this wine, the varieties used are Tempranillo and Graciano grapes from 60-year-old vines.
The grapes are destemmed and macerated in cold. The fermentation is conducted spontaneously and in a natural way in wooden deposits, without a control of the temperature and with indigenous yeasts, being prolonged for 2-3 weeks.
Aro is aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels from the winery's own barrel-making. Subsequently, it is kept in wooden deposits for 6 more months.
After the ageing, it is slightly clarified with fresh egg whites before being bottled.
Serve at 17.0ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing

Tasting notes Muga Aro

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.
Sight It shows a beautiful cherry red colour with maroon edge. Nose In the nose, it shows spiced and toasted aromas from the barrels with subtle floral notes. Intense and clean aroma. Taste In the mouth, it is a powerful, complex and large wide. Very tasty, with plenty of ripe fruit and very powerful tannins. Long finish.  An excellent wine with a lot of character.

Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

Muga is one of those few wineries in Rioja that has managed to combine the most absolute family tradition with a renewed vision of the future. This has allowed them to maintain the unique character and personality of their wines. In addition, it is one of the few wineries in La Rioja that uses oak wood from its own cooperage in all the stages of the production and the ageing processes. An exemplary winery, and one of the most prestigious ones in La Rioja. Since the very beginning, harvest after harvest, it makes wine with the family seal: “Muga style”.
