Muga Selección Especial Reserva 2014
Un clásico de la zona que poco a poco se ha ido modernizando hacia un perfil más entero y fresco. Ahora cuenta con más potencia frutal y una madera perfectamente integrada. Sin duda, un tinto que cuenta con una buena evolución por delante.

Opinión de los críticos
The Muga family is a lot happier about 2014 than your average Riojano, and the 2014 Selección Especial shows why. Through a selection of the vineyards and longer aging in barrel, this is a more-polished wine, very good with food (it's the one winemaker Jorge Muga usually has when he drinks one of his wines with a meal). There is very good acidity here, which is why I think this is so good with food. I really see that vintages produced from the higher-altitude, cooler places in Rioja where the Muga family sources their grapes are different from other parts of Rioja, and this 2014 is one of the finest and most balanced of the recent vintages of Selección Especial. 200,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2017.
Fruit-focused red, with strong aromas of ripe blackberries, red plums and gently complex earthy and spicy notes. There’s energetic, ripe dark and red fruit on the palate. Silky and crisp with fine tannins, giving a velvety and chalky texture. Upbeat and succulent finish. Drink or hold.
Textbook Rioja, a classic from the Muga family. A lively blend showing succulent red fruits and back notes of sweet spices, underlined by freshness. Aged partly in new French oak, partly second fill. Hard to better.
