User Reviews for Future-Arrival Sale Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5 Ano Ribera del Duero

Winemaker's Notes:

Valbuena is often referred to as Vega Sicilia's second wine. Though this helps to simplify the conversation and brings up well-deserved comparisons between Vega Sicilia and the great growths of Bordeaux, it is not strictly so. In fact, Valbuena is more like the flagship wine it is the largest-production cuve0020and the one that the winery believes best expresses the house style. 2007 was a vintage in the Ribera that was marked by lower-than-average temperatures over the course of the summer, resulting in a slow, even maturation and a relatively late harvest. The 2007 is a superbly-structured and richly spiced example of this bottling which will reward extended cellaring. 80% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), 20% Merlot and Malbec. Aged for three years in new and used French and American barrels as well as large neutral oak vats. Two years of additional aging in bottle
