Tasting notes for Red Wine Muga Crianza 2017:
We find a ruby red wine with shiny tiles. On the palate it has a mellow attack, an enveloping tannin with hints of menthol.
On the nose there are notes of red berries and hints of spices. All this very well harmonized with smoked aromas of its passage through woods with a light-medium roast. Vanilla branch is present in the background with notes of coffee.
Optimum service temperature: 16° C.
A pairing: Tallarines con ternera y berenjenas.
