The new Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5 2011 vintage is again presented as the most modern entry from Unico, the purest expression of the fine red wine (tempranillo) from Vega Sicilia Wineries. With a very strong and special intensity on the nose and more presence of ripened black fruit, the main challenge for this vintage was to preserve the freshness, given that 2011 was a particularly warm and mature harvest in the area. With the challenge met and overcome, Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5 2011 appears again as one of the reds by Ribera del Duero of high quality and exceptional distinction -- which all of the wines by this prestigious Spanish winery have.
