Muga Rioja red wines are known for freshness, complexity with cigar box notes, spices, and lively acidity. These wines are incredibly food-friendly and pair wonderfully with rich foods such as paella, lamb, cassoulet, pasta, and charcuterie. Muga Blanco is excellent with poultry, fish dishes, pasta or cheese.
A bottle of Muga Seleccion Especial or Gran Reserva Prado Enea would be a fantastic gift for a Rioja lover.
