Review

Vega Sicilia's Único has become one of the unquestionable references amongst the world's best wines and a legend in Spain's wine-making history. Meticulous care is taken over every detail involved in its production and the end result is an exceptional Gran Reserva wine, with great elegance, balance, concentration and complexity, and the ability to maintain its characteristics in bottle for years.

A Tinto Fino (Ribera's Tempranillo) wine incorporating a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon (around 5-15% depending upon the vintage), this classic is only produced in good years and undergoes lengthy barrel ageing and considerable time in bottle before release.

Exuding an array of complex aromas, the wine picks up the fine wood tones and carries them right the way through on the palate, discreetly and subtly, but persistently. This is a powerful, opulent wine, with flavours that time enhances, and a mythical aura making it an absolute must for every wine-lover to yearn to try.

Dark and powerful

Very powerfull but very young, you should wait for 10 years or so before opening it. Dark nice color, good aromas and so powerful taste...

Excellent !

Pairs well with spicy and savoury cuisine. Medium body with smooth texture and silky finish. Drinking very well since 2018.

prometedor

Este vino se ha comprado con el objetivo de guardarlo para el futuro. Los Vega Sicilia Unico son vinos que mejoran con los años, siempre y cuando han sido guardados en condiciones adecuadas. Por experiencia con otros Vega Sicilia, Vinissimus me ha demostrado que es una fuente segura como provedor de vinos tan esspeciales.

Un monumento

Un vino fenomenal! Uno de los mejores del mundo claro, pero comparàndolo a otris campeones, sale menos caro y te da un placer muy comparable. Una maravilla y un valor segurísimo.

Wine from Bodegas Vega Sicilia

Bodegas Vega Sicilia

Founded in 1864 by Eloy Lecanda and run today by the Álvarez family, Vega Sicilia is the most emblematic winery in Spain. It is in fact one of the oldest in Spain and undoubtedly one of the best in the world. Located in Valbuena de Duero, its name comes from ‘vega’, the Spanish word to describe the low-lying fertile land beside the Duero River, and a phonetic deformation of Cecilia, as the estate was originally known as Coto de Santa Cecilia.  Ever...
