VEGA SICILIA UNICO 2005

Myth full of truth

Patriarch and precursor of a line of exceptional wines, forged over time, whose durability distinguishes and gives them a special character.

With an inimitable, firm and solid style, it has been able to create a unique and timeless taste. A world-renowned icon that thanks to the endeavours, perseverance and discretion have carved the story.

Of the 1,000 hectares making up the Vega Sicilia estate, 210 are used for wine growing, and there are 19 soil-types divided for management purposes into 52 plots with very specific characteristics. The influence of the Duero river's flow and the passage of time have been vital in forming these soils.

40 of these hectares are employed to produce Unico. A unique, magical estate which, along with extraordinary management of the vineyard, enables the production of legendary wines.

The Unico ageing process is probably the world's longest since it runs for at least ten years from barrel to bottle. 225-litre barrels of French and American wood, both new and used, and 20,000-litre tanks. A long complex process for a legendary wine.

Unico is a wine for all eternity. Only a handful of terroirs worldwide can match this wine's extraordinary ageing potential. This is a wine of inimitable style, mature, tremendously elegant and silky, in which the ageing process brings the mystique of the essence to the surface.

These wines are ready for drinking now but may potentially be stored for approximately 40 - 60 years if kept in optimum conditions (12-14 ºC) at 60% relative humidity, and constant temperature, protected from direct light. Optimum drinking temperature is 18 ºC
