Miguel Angel Muro

Go straight to the wines

As with so many of the producers on our list, Bodegas Miguel Ángel Muro came about because of the interest of the younger generation. The Muro family has owned 22 hectares of Tempranillo, Graciano and Macabeo in Laguardia and Lapuebla de Labarca for generations but it was only with the arrival of Miguel Angel Muro at the helm that estate bottling has begun.

Bodegas  Muro comprises 22 hectares of freehold vineyard (Tempranillo 84%, Graciano 5% and Macabeo 11%) in the municipal areas of Lapuebla de Labarca and Laguardia, with vines averaging 35 years old. The south-facing vineyards are located at an exceptional height above sea level (450m to 570 m) receiving a small amount of rainfall throughout the year ? around 380 litres. All these characteristics contribute to the excellent personality of the grapes, which is the main basis for preparing its exceptional quality wines.

The winery has been updated with 200 French and American barrels used. The range includes a strikingly good unoaked Rioja which has vibrant fruit from carbonic maceration. Next is a superb Crianza from the stunning 2007 vintage and a Reserva from the outstanding 2004 vintage. Finally, a new flagship wine has been added, Amenital, a special selection first produced in 2004 (2005 also available).
