The wine

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.

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...
