User Reviews for Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 5 Ribera del Duero

Winemaker's Notes:

This is the official Vega Sicilia, only made in top years and released anywhere from 10 to 20 years after the vintage. A characteristic common to all Vega Sicilia vintages is their brightness. Although these wines are relatively old, they retain remarkable freshness due to the good levels of acidity and a fair amount of body and alcohol. Intense cherry red with ruby reflections. In its aromatic complexity the nose is uniquely 'Unico,' showing notes of macerated fruit, compote, eucalypus and menthol characteristic of the Vega Sicilia terroir. The palate is powerful, opulent and aggressive, with an aromatically persistant finish reflecting the flavors of the nose.
