It is the reference of Vega Sicilia. A wine in which the qualities of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon in different proportions are perfectly assembled. Each one of them contributes, in each vintage, a differentiating element that makes it great.
The vines are cultivated in plots with soils located in the contact between slopes that descend from the páramo and the alluvial plain. The most superficial soil is formed by thin hillside colluviums with small fragments of limestones, in depth there are abundant quartzite gravels in a sandy matrix.

French and American wood, new and used 225 liters barrels, vats of 20,000 liters, each of the lots is the one that determines the type of wood and the permanence in each container.

TASTING NOTES - SERENA SUTCLIFFE
90% fine red, 7% cabernet sauvignon, 3% merlot, malbec and albillo. Splendid nose similar to that of the Rhone wine. Spicy, deeply aromatic and purebred. Magnificent and intense wine flavor of the north of the Rhone: violets and licorice, with a perfect balance between fruit, acidity and tannins. Fresh and yet subtle and complex. Pleasant and full-bodied, with an intense fruity finish. One of my favorite favorites In 2013, sweet nose with a touch of violet. Great sweetness on the palate, delicate and filigree texture. Danced in the mouth in a delicious way.
