Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Vega Sicília Valbuena 5º Año is an excellent Tempranillo and Merlot coupage, produced by the legendary Vega Sicilia winery, in the Ribera del Duero.

Vega Sicilia, part of the Tempos Vega Sicilia group, is one of the best-known producers in the world. It dates back to 1864 but was acquired by David Álvarez Díez in 1982 and since then his name has continued to spread across the world due to the high quality of his wines. His philosophy, taking pride in things done well, has made him a winemaking legend. 

Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5º año comes from plots sitting on gentle slopes with highly expressive soils composed of deep calcium material. It is made mainly with the Tinta Fina variety (Tempranillo) with a touch of Merlot. This amount varies from vintage to vintage.

The must ferments with its native yeasts at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks, where it also undergoes malolactic fermentation. It then ages in different sized new and used French and American barrels, and then finally rests in the bottle for five years, hence its name, Valbuena 5º año.

A process full of patience and complexity, but always the same, so that the only difference between the crops is the weather, which creates a great vintage wine that is representative of the terroir it comes from.

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.

Also discover other wineries such as Pintia, Alión, or the Macán wines made by "Benjamin de Rotschild & Vega Sicilia" that are also part of the Vega Sicilia universe.
