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. On the surface the angular limestone songs abound.

After fermentation, it goes through what is probably the longest aging in the world in a red, almost 10 years between wood and bottle. Going through different stages in different types of barrel. 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.
After its passage through wood it ages in the bottle to complete a complex and long aging process. In normal conditions it will be 6 years in wood and three years in bottle.
The different elements that participate in its elaboration are modeled and molded in search of the master line that has guided the wine. Unique remains faithful to a clear and well defined style, an inimitable character and style; elegance, firmness, aging capacity ... A unique and timeless taste that has encumbrado to the aristocracy of the great classics.
It offers an infinite complexity that is shown little by little, in each sip, its passage through the mouth is immensely silky and elegant, and has an aging capacity only available to a few wines in the world.
TASTING NOTES - SERENA SUTCLIFFE
65% fine red, 20% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot, malbec and albillo. On the nose, an earthy smell, to mushrooms, and also violets and anise. It is a thick, opulent land of almost "Burgundian" flavor. Multitude of sweet fruits, which melt in the middle of a violet scent. Elements of a Côte de Nuits mineral, first line, with an extra of anise! More concentrated than the one in 1962 and much more spicy, with an earthy finish. In 2013, with a younger nose. The anise was present, but with an imposing sweetness that dissolved on the palate. A superb bottle and, on this occasion, authentically Vegassilian!
