Characteristics of Vega Sicilia Único

Vega Sicilia Único is an extraordinary red wine made by the Vega Sicilia winery in the Ribera del Duero in Valbuena de Duero in Valladolid.

Vega Sicilia is the most emblematic Spanish bodegas. A historic wine cellar, over 150 years old, which has become a myth, an icon recognized worldwide thanks to the sheer quality of its wines. Vega Sicilia Único is a wine of legend. One of those wines that any amateur longs to taste at least once in their life.

A limited production wine that is made only in the best vintages. It is a blend made from Tinto Fino, with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes come from the oldest vineyards of the estate owned by the winery in Valbuena de Duero, a farm along the Douro river with alluvial clay-limestone soils.

There is an influence of a continental climate together with Atlantic influence, with little rainfall concentrated in spring and autumn and hot summers with plenty of sunshine. Vega Sicilia is characterized by taking great care throughout the process.

The work begins in the vineyard. Pruning is performed to remove bunches and limit the production of each strain, obtaining grapes with great concentration.

The harvest is done manually, selecting the ripest clusters. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in oak tanks for 15 days at a maximum temperature of 32 ° C. Once completed, it is run off into oak vats where the malolactic fermentation occurs. In these vats, the wine rests for a whole year in order to clarify and settle.

Vega Sicilia Único is aged for at least seven years in French oak manufactured in the cellar. The aging begins in new barrels, and rotates into used barrels with the intention of achieving a perfect balance between wine and wood.

Once bottled, Vega Sicilia Unico rests in the bottle for 3 years before going to market. A long process, which stretches for up to 10 years, gives life to a very special wine, a unique wine.

Tasting notes Vega Sicilia Único

2010 started with heavy frosts in winter and spring, causing a delay in the commencement of the growth cycle. Above all, this situation marked the vintage with a low yield harvest. This delay of the growth cycle was offset by a slightly mild but good ripening. This fact resulted in wines with greater structure, floral wines with very ripe fruit in compote, a little less acid than the 2009 vintage, but with an excellent quality and with a long life ahead. The low production and the excellent ripening helped classify this vintage as excellent.
The 2009 vintage started with a winter of low temperatures, which gave way to a cool spring. A dry summer, with warm days and mild nights, and great temperature changes between day and night, led to very balanced, complex and concentrated grapes. As for climate, it was the perfect vintage. This influenced the health of the grapes, which was excellent. Therefore, the wines from this vintage have a good acidity, which is responsible for long-lived wines with a good structure. And generally, responsible for very fruity wines with fresh red fruit that stands out. One of the great vintages of this region.
Sight Intense ripe cherry red colour, with a bright edge. Nose Toasted touches from the wood, with nutty notes from the oxidative evolution obtained during its years in the barrel. Taste A great range of flavours of old but clean wood, with dry and pleasantly bitter tannins from the oak, together with sweet hints from the alcohol. It has a very long finish.

    Vega Sicilia is one of those wines that everyone has heard of, but no one has tried. In fact, it is said that Vega Sicilia is nowadays a fantasy that has become a myth. Strangely enough, what gave made it popular at the beginning was the production of brandy and ratafia, as in 1876, in Philadelphia, the winery Lecanda attained the quality certificate for its superb brandy. In this same year, they managed to become the supplier of the Royal Household (Real Casa), and in 1880 they were awarded the Great Cross of Isabel the Catholic. All of this happened and the red Vega Sicilia had not even been born yet.
