Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

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.

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”.
