Vega Sicilia Unico 1995 Magnum 150 cl Wooden Gift Box

It is the Vega Sicilia flagship. The qualities of the Tempranillo and cabernet sauvignon in different proportions are assembled to perfection in this wine. Each provides a differentiating factor that makes the wine great in every vintage.

The vines are grown on plots where the land is located at the point between the slopes down from the wasteland and the alluvial plain. The soil nearest the surface is made out of fine colluvial deposits from the hillside with small fragment of limestone. There is abundant quartz gravel deeper down in a sandy main soil. There are many angular limestone boulders on the surface.

Red wine made in controlled fermentation using native yeast in wooden tanks. Malolactic fermentation also takes place in wood.

After its fermentation, its goes through what is probably the world’s longest ageing of a red wine, almost 10 years between wood and bottle. The different stages take place in different types of barrel: American and French wood, new and used 225-litre barrels, 20,000-litre vats, each batch is what determines the type of wood and the time spent in each container.

After the stage in the wood, it is aged in the bottle to complete a long and complex ageing process. It will normally spend 6 years in wood and three in the bottle.

The different elements in its preparation are fine-tuned in the search of the master line that has guided the wine. Único remains true to a clear and well-defined style, with an inimitable character and style; elegance, strength, ageing capacity… A unique and timeless taste that has elevated it to among the aristocracy of the great classic wines.

It offers an infinite complexity that is gradually revealed, in every sip, the palate immensely silky and elegant, and has an ageing capacity that only a handful of wines in the world can claim.

Dark red. Intense, expressive aromas of blackberry, blueberry, cherry liqueur, sandalwood, cigar box, roasted coffee and exotic chocolate. Thick and sweet, with deep red and dark berry flavors complicated by an array of pungent spices, mocha, vanilla bean and cured tobacco. Deep, penetrating and very long on the finish, with wonderfully sweet cherry and blackcurrant flavors lingering. Built to age, but this is awfully delicious right now.

94/100 (September 2006)

Wonderful aromas and taste of wild berries, blackberries, rasberries, liquorish, dark chocolate, coffee, perfectly balanced spices and lingering wild red fruits. The 94, 95, and 96 are all very special and delicious but this 1995 Gran Reserva by Vega Sicilia is likely to be my favourite. Like all classic Vega Sicilia wines the aging potential is infinite, providing they are cellared in optimum conditions we can continue to enjoy this beautiful wine in optimum drinkability for the next 20/30 years plus.

Wonderful and classic food pairing is Joselito Gran Reserva Bellota Jamon and Manchego Cheese, for main course a beautiful pairing is Roasted Leg of Spanish Lamb and sweet potatoes. A excellent dessert and contrast is Cheesecake.
