Vega Sicilia Unico

  • Description
  • Tasting Notes
  • Winery
  • From the 1,000 hectares which make up the Vega Sicilia estate, 210 are used for wine growing, under 19 soil types divided into 57 plots with very specific characteristics. The influence of the Duero River’s flow and the passage of time have been vital in developing these soils. 40 of these hectares are used to produce Unico, whose aging of at least ten years (in barrel and bottle) is one of the world’s longest. 225-litre French and American oak barrels, new and used, 20,000-litre tanks. A long complex process, for a legendary wine.

  • Regaining Unico´s traditional cycle, we once again release this year´s UNICO, ten years after its harvest. A generous, potent vintage providing an expressive, profound, rich wine.
