You will like to know that...
A unique wine like this one does not require an introduction, because it has successfully overcome all limitations to becoming a worldwide symbol. Vega Sicilia Único 2008 assembles to perfection the qualities of tempranillo and cabernet sauvignon. After unique processes of winemaking and aging (it is probably one of the wines with the longest aging of the world, as it can spend almost 10 years between wood and bottle), it becomes a wine of inimitable character and style: elegant, complex, with a huge capacity to evolve. All of this has catapulted Único to the Olympus of wines and has turned it into a legend.
