2011 vega sicilia, unico, ribera del duero
Why We're Buying
If you want the best Spanish wine, Vega Sicilia Unico is your entry point. The centuries-old winery is home to Unico, widely regarded as one of the finest and most valuable red wines. In fact, it's the one Spanish wine traded on the Liv-ex 1000 index.
Very ripe with plum, spice and dried-flower aromas, as well as chocolate, fresh flowers and sandalwood. Coffee and hints of meat. Sort of decadent. Full-bodied with round, creamy tannins and an intense, juicy feel. Unique cedar and walnut undertones. So delicious now, but one for the future, too.
