The Ribera del Duero area enjoys a continental climate with an Atlantic influence. Rainfall is low, with annual averages below 500 mm, concentrated especially in spring and autumn. Sunshine is abundant, as the River Duero region favours the morning mists and fogs that provide an additional source of humidity. There are 250 hectares of vineyard at Vega Sicilia, mostly Tempranillo de la Ribera, with further plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec. Vintage 1995 was vinified mostly from Tempranillo with a seventh of Cabernet Sauvignon, matured up to ten years in a combination of seasoned and new, oak casks and larger capacity wooden vats.
Dark opaque cherry colour. Deeply aromatic, penetrating fragrances of dark, elegant berries with generous hints of vanilla and tobacco oak. Massive concentration of fruit on the palate, sweetly oaked with a complexity of grain, leather and spice. Lengthy, drying tannins in support of layers of fruit, a wine of immeasurable length before a lingering, fruit filled finish.
