Vega Sicilia (Ribera del Duero)
Product not available in United States
Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5th Year 2013 is a great example of the high quality of Ribera del Duero wines that is achieved with the help of Bodegas Vega Sicilia. This is the winery's youngest wine, and it embodies the modern and accessible style of some of the winery's older wines; Vega Sicilia Único and Vega Sicilia Único Reserva Especial.
It is aged in wood for 3 years and in the bottle for 2, hence its name. This process is somewhat shorter than it is for other wines, and the grapes used for its production come from younger vineyards. The result is, as in each vintage, a spectacular wine, that is expressive, elegant, and powerful, and allows us to get to know a mythical winery in Spain. This wine is not meant for just any occasion, and must only be uncorked on the most special of occasions.
