The first winery was founded by José Villaverde Murúa in 1926. Today, Bodegas Muriel is an established company that faces the future building upon the solidness gained by experience.
Classic ruby red with hints of a light brick red colour. Very complex and intense aroma, with fine scents of aging which are assembled perfectly: vanilla, spices and herbs. Very ripe fruit recollections appear. In the palate, it is a finely balanced wine, with a polished and elegant body, with a long and pleasant aftertaste.
