Vega Sicilia's Unico Reserva Especial is traditionally a blend of several top vintages and is considered the noblest of Vega Sicilia wines. The unqualified flagship.
The Vega Sicilia Reserva Especial Unico shines in a dense, dark cherry red with purple reflections. The seductive bouquet of this legend of the Spanish wine landscape is deep and complex with elegant mineral notes and subtle spicy aromas of truffles, blackberry jam, Asian spices, leather and cigar box. Prunes, hints of forest floor and dark chocolate increase the complexity of this nose to almost immeasurable levels.
On the palate, Vega Sicilia's Reserva Especial Unico is round, opulent and with an aromatic, smooth richness that combines concentrated elegance and power. The long finish of this red wine, produced largely from Tempranillo, testifies to a splendid persistence and noble aristocratic style.
