Tempranillo Cabernet Sauvignon Ribera Del Duero Spain
The wines of Vega Sicilia are renowned for their complexity, intensity and longevity, amongst the finest in the world. The definitive, long lived Spanish Tempranillo wine and the estate flagship, the unique personality of Unico Cosecha is derived from the quality of fruit and uncompromising attention to detail.
Vega Sicilia own and operate 250 hectares of the most splendid winegrowing terroir on the Ribero Del Duero. The exacting standards involved in making Unico Cosecha begins with the husbanding of vines, which are controlled down to each detail. Vega Sicilia have established limits to the production of the estate's vines, which are not to surpass twenty two hectolitres per hectare. All are dry grown and hand pruned, yielding less than two kilos each. Grapes are never picked unless they have achieved high levels of natural sugar concentration. The finished Unicco Cosecha is matured up to ten years in a combination of seasoned and new, estate coopered oak casks and large capacity wooden vats.
Intense cherry red colour, brilliant. Complex and elegant nose, the fruit is integrated with subtle, fine oak characters. Exceptional balance on the palate, exhibiting all the elegance of a statuesque Tempranillo wine, muscular, stately and solidly structured yet elegant and refined, retaining all the liveliness of youth. Complex, flavourful and persistent.
