Description

Vega Sicilia is Spain’s most prestigious estate, and, until the 1950s, probably the only one with an international reputation. Most of its production goes into a wine called Valbuena – it is made from younger vines and contains more Merlot than Cabernet Sauvignon, and is aged for five years before release – but the finest parcels are reserved for Unico. This wine is produced only in the top vintages, and 1970 was truly outstanding in Ribera del Duero. For many years, this particular wine was the finest Spanish wine the wine critic Robert Parker had ever tasted.
