VEGA-SICILIA UNICO, 2011
The most anticipated, awarded and recognized wine from Spain is here: VEGA SICILIA UNICO.
Variety - 95 % Tinto Fino and 5 % Cabernet Sauvignon
Of the almost 1,000 hectares that make up the Vega Sicilia estate, 210 are allocated to the cultivation of vines, with nineteen different types of soil and fifty-five plots with very specific features. Forty of these hectares are used to produce Unico, which is aged for a minimum of ten years between barrel and bottle, one of the longest ageing processes in the world.
French and American oak 225-litre barrels and 22,000-litre vats are used to produce Unico.
Thanks to this incredible terroir and unique ageing process, our wines become eternal when they age.
2011 is a concentrated vintage yet, elegant, silky, precise and deep. Unico is an expression that can be savoured immediately, although over time it will become truly incredible. It is, without a shadow of doubt, a true delight.
