Vega Sicilia (Ribera del Duero)
Product not available in United States
Valbuena shows us a direct and understandable vision of the greatness of this "terroir" with the direct influence of each vintage.
The fermentation is done with indigenous yeast. After fermentation it aged in oak and bottle, five years, hence the name of the wine Valbuena 5th. French and American oak barrels 225l, new and used, vats 20,000l, a long and complex process for a great wine.
