Buy Bodegas Muga Rioja Seleccion Especial
To the eye the wine is bright and luminous. It displays an intense cherry red colour with deep and attractive scarlet shades on the rim of the glass.

On the nose there is an aromatic depth of fine and mature fruity notes which intermingle with those that come from the noble oak barrels. You can sense the subtle vanilla and lightly spicy aromas that will open and develop into more complex notes for years to come.

Wine Spectator 95 points - The 2009 Seleccion Especial is sourced from the same blend of 70% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho (they use the masculine form of the name here), 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo as the Reserva and also from the same zone in the confluence of the Oja and Ebro rivers selected from the geologically older plots, usually in higher terraces where the vines are at least 30 years old. Fermentation is carried out in oak vats and aged in barriques for twenty eight months, initially in new barrels and then transferred to used ones. This is more backward and closed than the Reserva, with a more subtle and elegant nose, a tighter palate, with fine-grained tannins, pungent flavors and great acidity and length. The Reserva’s big brother. 240,000 bottles produced. Drink 2015-2024.
