Editorial Reviews for Bodegas Vega-Sicilia Tempranillo Blend Ribera del Duero Único
This bottle had a very poor cork so it was not surprising that it showed a touch advanced but none-the -less this had a wonderful nose of leather, spice, dark, rich fruit and an earthy, gamey tang. In the mouth this showed good resolution but with particularly fine balance. It started out reticently but really developed over the several hours it was opened gaining a bit more mid-palate richness and depth of sweet, ripe fruit on the back end that lead to a long, layered finish. A real sense of finesse and elegance, much more so that with the last bottle. Certainly drinking well but with a very long life ahead 2008-2025
full dark color, makes me think of bulls blood. Stinky right out of the bottle, leathery with dark cherry and earth, minerally, shale, a hint of citrus, super sweet wood notes, a bit of carob, and a seductive cough drop note. very complex and dynamic nose. This is showing a bit more elegantly than previous bottles, perfectly integrated, a muscular dancer, earthy fresh fruit in the mouth with very vibrant red fruits, tightly coiled strawberries on the finish which is richly minerally and delicately tobacco tinged. A consistently great bottle of wine.
One of the 3 best wines I've ever tried. Rich and structured. Shows basically 3 layers ( but each one much more complex in itself than I am able to descibe): fruits (dark and wild fruits), vanilla and details from time in wood, and special details such as the exquisite animal smell. Although expensive, it is more than worthwhile.
This wine tasted like A horrible mixture of Vinager and Butter. Stay away
Has the character of an excellent Rivera del Duero wine. Grate bouquet and a perfect balance between wood and fruit. Very complex.
nice wine but not like the former old vintages like 1990 -
pure and delicate wine. really nice-

A Proprietary Blend wine from Castilla Leon in Spain. 1940 Vega Sicilia Unico 750ml
Luxurious Drinks offers you: Wine - red - Bodega Vega-Sicilia Unico Especial - Spain - Region: Rbera del Duero - Apellation: Rbera del Duero - Tempranillo - 750 ml.
Having skipped over releasing a 2001 due to frost damage, the 2002 Unico is a result of a severe selection as attested by the label which shows that just 42,932 bottles were produced instead of 108,536 in 2000. It has an incredibly intense nose, much... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Castilla Leon in Spain. 2002 Vega Sicilia Unico 750ml
Bright ruby. Smoky, floral-accented aromas of redcurrant, cherry pit and plum, with a peppery topnote. Sweet and open-knit, offering musky red fruit and floral pastille flavors and notes of mocha and succulent herbs. Shows very good depth and powe... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from Castilla Leon in Spain. 2002 Vega Sicilia Unico 750ml
Unico, from the legendary Vega Sicilia winery, is only produced in exceptional years. This wine, made from mostly Tempranillo and a little Cabernet Sauvignon, is barrel-aged for a minimum of 10 years before being released. Intense complexity and layer upon layer of co-mingling flavors makes this an unforgettable wine. This wine will continue to age for many decades to come.
In the absence of a 2001 Unico, Vega Sicilia has re-released the 2000 Unico which I reviewed in Issue 189. The 2000 Unico is deep crimson-colored with an ethereal perfume aided by its extended upbringing. Aromas of Asian spices, lavender, incense, tr... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Castilla Leon in Spain. 2000 Vega Sicilia Unico 750ml
Deep red. High-pitched aromas of redcurrant, dried cherry, potpourri and spicecake. Silky in texture and alluringly spherical, offering seamless red fruit and floral pastille flavors and late notes of blood orange and Asian spices. Nothing heavy or f... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
