Vega Sicilia Único is an extraordinary red wine made by Bodega Vega Sicilia in the D.O. Ribera del Duero, winery located in Valbuena de Duero in the province of Valladolid. Vega Sicilia is the most emblematic Spanish winery. A historic winery, more than 150 years old, that has become a myth, an icon recognized worldwide thanks to the enormous quality of its wines.
Vega Sicilia Único is a wine of legend. One of those wines that any fan longs to taste, at least once in his life. A wine of limited production and that is only made in the best vintages.
It is a coupage made from the Tinto Fino variety, with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes come from the oldest vineyards of the property owned by the winery in Valbuena de Duero, a farm on the banks of the Douro River with calcareous and alluvial clay soils.
The influence of a continental climate with an Atlantic influence is low, with scarce rainfall concentrated in the spring and autumn and hot summers with a lot of sunshine.
Vega Sicilia is characterized by taking maximum care of all the details in the preparation. The work starts in the vineyard. Pruning is done in green to eliminate clusters and thus limit the production of each strain, obtaining grapes with a lot of concentration.
The harvest is done manually, selecting those bunches that are at their optimum ripeness. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in oak tanks for 15 days at a maximum temperature of 32ºC. Once finished, it is discovered some oak vats where it performs malolactic fermentation. In these vats rest for a whole year in order to clarify and rest the wine.
Vega Sicilia Único is aged for at least 7 years in French oak barrels manufactured in the winery's own cooperage. It starts in new barrels, and rotates to a more and more used barrel with the intention of achieving a perfect balance between wine and wood.
Once bottled, Vega Sicilia Único still rests in the bottle 3 more years before going on the market.
A long process, which lasts for almost 10 years, to give life to a very special wine, a unique wine.
The 1962 Vega Sicilia has a rather surprising purity on the nose with candied fruit of dark cherry, eucalyptus, kirsch and a touch of cinnamon. This is what you could describe as a "perfect bouquet". The palate is medium bodied with filigree tannin, without seams and satin texture: a Unico that shines with unlimited grandeur. Juvenile, lively and completely convincing, this is a deep wine that even after four decades is saturated with precocity. Undoubtedly, this must be one of the best Spanish wines that has adorned this planet. 87,600 bottles produced. Drink now-2020 + tested in January 2012.
