Vega Sicilia Unico wine, hailing from the prestigious Spanish winery Vega Sicilia, is renowned for its complex, deeply layered taste and longevity. This wine is a harmonious balance between care, elegance and finesse, with a rich finish that continually evolves on the palate. Made predominantly from the Tempranillo grape (also known as Tinto Fino) and smaller proportions of Cabernet Sauvignon, Unico spends at least 10 years ageing in oak, thus creating its characteristic depth and incredibly smooth texture. Vega Sicilia Unico is akin to a symphony, demonstrating the harmony of vineyard, grape, climate and time.
2013 is a subtle, elegant, fresh, vertical, complex, silky, and well-defined vintage. This wine is a true paradox, enjoyable to drink now, but timeless when allowed to age in bottle.
