You will like to know that...
Valbuena is the "youngest" wine of Vega Sicilia, and the winery's second wine, a well rounded reserve with aromatic richness, and an essential in our collection. The winery (founded in 1864) became the gold standard of Spanish wine in 1915, precisely the year in which Valbuena red wine was first marketed. Vega Sicilia ages Valbuena wine for 5 years (3 in wood and 2 in the bottle), hence its name: Valbuena 5th Year.

On the other hand, the Valbuena wine represents the winery's most contemporary line, with its own style, distinctive from the emblematic Único y Único Reserva Especial, although with the same characteristics of quality. It has a somewhat shorter ageing and comes from younger vines and, in its composition, is mainly Tempranillo (Tinto Fino) and Merlot. The 1986 vintage was one of the best of the recent history of Ribera and is evident in this wine with extremely refined texture. As the rules of the house dictate, it is a wine of great maturity and elegance, which only reaches the consumer when it is ready for consumption, with well-tanned oak and a complex relationship between vinosity and fruit. In any case, In any case, Valbuena is a Spanish great and a sure asset to uncork on the best occasions.
