Vega Sicilia Unico 

When Vega Sicilia became part of the Álvarez family's life in 1982, the foundations were laid for TEMPOS Vega Sicilia. It has constantly and steadily grown since then, involving the introduction of wines produced in different wine-making areas, reaching out to new consumers around the world and laying the foundations for a promising and highly successful future.

Autumn was the time of the grape harvest and this land could, finally, begin to dream; the grapes proved to be noted for their unrivalled quality and personality. And after being left to mature in the silence and solitude of the winery, they had become one of the greatest legends of the history of wine. Vega Sicilia was finally born.

From the 1,000 hectares that make up the Vega Sicilia estate, 210 are used for vine-growing, under 19 soil types and 57 plots with very specific characteristics. The influence of the Duero River's flow and the passage of time have been vital in developing these soils.

Forty of these hectares are used to produce Unico, aged for at least ten years (in barrel and bottle) is one of the longest in the world. New and used 225-litre French and American oak barrels and 22,000-litre tanks. A long complex process, for a legendary wine.

A generous, potent vintage providing an expressive, profound, rich wine.

This wine is suitable for drinking now, but it can be stored for 40 - 60 years in optimal conditions: 12-14 °C / 54-57 ºF and 60 % relative humidity.
