Details for Vega Sicilia Único Reserva Especial - Edición 2019
Bottle size and vintage
The "Único" Reserva Especial is released as a non-vintage blend and brings together only the finest fruit of Vega Sicilia's best harvests. Traditional in its concept, it dates back to times when most bodegas sold their wines directly from the cask, as bottling was uncommon.
After harvest, the current year's wine was offered along with the 'Reserva Especial', blending the best harvests and defining the bodega as its most representational wine.
Dark cherry red in colour, it has an elegant nose and a refined, spicy bouquet. Concentrated and mature, this classic wine also draws into the composition the extremely fine wood used in ageing and the importance of time spent in bottle, which endow it with roundness, subtlety and powerfulness.
NOTA: The 2019 Release is a blend of the 2006, 2007 and 2009 vintages of Vega Sicilia Único.
