Description

An iconic Ribera del Duero wine with a seductive aromatic richness and sophistication

The estate

Since its acquisition by the Álvares family in 1982, Vega Sicilia has continued to grow and establish its international reputation. An iconic estate, Vega Sicilia originates from the north of Castile, in the wine-growing area of the DO Ribera del Duero, but also extends into the DO Toro appellation in the south of Castile.

Today, a constant search for excellence, a symbiotic harmony with nature, rigour and dedication make this Spanish estate a prestigious reference. Over the years, other wineries like Pintia have embraced and enhanced the philosophy of Vega Sicilia. Thus, the extreme care provided both in the vineyards and throughout the winemaking process leads to the production of fine Spanish wines from the most unique lands.

The vineyard

Situated alongside the Duero River, the 210 hectares of vineyards are divided into three grape varieties: Tempranillo (also known as Tinto Fino), Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. 140 hectares of this vineyard are reserved for the production of the Valbuena and Unico vintages. The entire vineyard is managed in a sustainable manner.

Stemming from exceptional terroirs where the vines are 36 years old on average and are planted on clay-limestone soils, this Unico 2012 by the Vega Sicilia bodega is only revealed following at least 10 years of ageing in the cellars of the estate. This iconic wine from the Ribera del Duero is one of the finest wines, both in Spain and throughout the world.

The vinification and ageing

This iconic wine is made in French barrels (partially new), American oak barrels and wooden tuns.

The blend

Vega Sicilia Unico 2012 comprises a blend of Tinto Fino (95%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%).

The tasting

Nose

Expressive and mature, the nose reveals a great aromatic richness through minty, spicy and woody fragrances that blend harmoniously with balsamic, eucalyptus and notes of pencil boxes.

Palate

Concentrated and juicy, this wine will seduce the palate with its silky feel, its structure, its tannic framework and its full body.

Service

For an optimal tasting experience, serve at 18°C.

Food and wine pairing

This fine Ribera del Duero wine will complement red meat, Iberian sausages and spicy dishes.

Storage

Enjoy now, this Unico 2012 by Vega Sicilia can be cellared until around 2072 in order to reveal its full aromatic richness.
