The new Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5 2011 vintage is again presented as the most modern entry from Unico, the purest expression of the fine red wine (tempranillo) from Vega Sicilia Wineries. With a very strong and special intensity on the nose and more presence of ripened black fruit, the main challenge for this vintage was to preserve the freshness, given that 2011 was a particularly warm and mature harvest in the area. With the challenge met and overcome, Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5 2011 appears again as one of the reds by Ribera del Duero of high quality and exceptional distinction -- which all of the wines by this prestigious Spanish winery have.

How to serve
Vega Sicilia winery is probably the most recognized Spanish wine-growing estate on international level. It was founded by Eloy Lecanda in 1864. During its nearly 150 years of history, the owners of the winery changed but the wines always have kept their personality: concentrated, genres and very elegant. Vega Sicilia currently belongs to Alvarez Mezquíriz who bought it in 1982, looking to be at the forefront regarding the latest innovations in the process of growing, winemaking and expanding the vineyard area.More about the Winery
