Link of the winery: http://www.vega-sicilia.com
Denomination of Origin / Zone: D.O. Ribera del Duero
Varieties: 60% fine red, 25% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot, malbec and albillo
Alcohol: 13.5% vol.
Elaboration: Grape coming only from own vineyards. After the alcoholic fermentation ends, it is transferred to large wooden containers, between 18,000 and 20,000 liters capacity, in which it performs malolactic fermentation and stabilizes for 22 months. Transformed into new oak barrels of 225 liters in which it is aged for 22 months. Again it is racked to continue its maturation in wooden vats for 24 months. The rest in bottle until its commercialization. Production limited to 66,500 bottles of 75 cl. and 2,250 liters to be bottled at 1,500 magnum.
Tasting note: Reddish ruby color of medium-low layer, very clear, clean, slightly more evolved than the rest of Vega Sicilia of the same period. Amber and copper reflections, without much brightness. Wide, sheltered edge, with hardly difference with the interior of the meniscus.
One of those wines that will be hard to forget. It overwhelms by its integrity and youth, by the quality of everything that is perceived. A striking fine, perfumed, floral, delicate tinto persists at all times, sustained in notes of violet caramel marbled with graffiti, roasted coffee and the finest woods possible. What elegance! It envelops and occupies all the space, without leaving room for anything else, without threats, nor going or selling, compact at all times. As complex as solid, in line with the great Vega Sicilia that justify the fame of the winery.
The palate is pure silk. Caressing, fluffy, barely rested for years remaining vital throughout the 2 hours of tasting. Integrated, with a hint of sweet fruit, absolutely tasty and an end of scandal. A magnificent unique that shines at a height that no other Spanish winery is able to achieve in years as unfortunate for viticulture as it was 1972. It is slightly below the magnum format of its same harvest, in which the Vega Sicilia express themselves in its authentic dimension. Even so it is by far the best wine of its promotion that we have had the luck to try and surely it will continue to be so for many years because it is full of vitality
