The 1995 Unico is a worthy successor to the profound 1994 (awarded a score of 98+ in Issue #159). Opaque purple in color it has aromatic complexity which nearly defies words.

Opaque purple in color it has aromatic complexity which nearly defies words. There are notes of earth licorice hard wood charcoal and black currants. Full-bodied and powerful the wine has beautiful balance with a multi-dimensional character and the structure to last for 25-40 years. The 1960 and the 1965 drunk within the last several months appear to have many more years ahead.

Intense expressive aromas of blackberry blueberry cherry liqueur sandalwood cigar box roasted coffee and exotic chocolate. Thick and sweet with deep red and dark berry flavors complicated by an array of pungent spices mocha vanilla bean and cured tobacco. Deep penetrating and very long on the finish with wonderfully sweet cherry and blackcurrant flavors lingering. Built to age but this is awfully delicious right now.

Label

Unico is Vega Sicilia’s flagship wine, made from varying proportions of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon. Each provides a differentiating factor that makes the wine great in every vintage.

Unico remains true to a clear and well-defined style, with an inimitable character, elegance, and strength. It has a unique and timeless quality that has elevated it among the aristocracy of the great classic wines. Infinitely complex, the wine is silky and elegant, with an aging capacity that only a handful of wines in the world can claim.

Winery

Vega Sicilia

Vega Sicilia, one of Spain’s most famous and legendary wine estates, is located in Ribera del Duero, in the Valbuena de Duero in the province of Valladolid, Castilla y Leon. Founded in 1864 by Don Eloy Lacanda y Chaves, who brought cuttings of Bordelaise varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, and Pinot Noir from Bordeaux, the estate changed hands several times before it was purchased in 1982 by the Alvarez family. This marked the beginning of one of the most prosperous periods in the history of the company.

A large estate of nearly 1,000 hectares, just 210 hectares are planted to vines which have been grown on the Vega Sicilia estate for over a hundred years. The vines, with an average age of 35 years, are planted to three varieties: Tempranillo (80%), Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and are used to produce Vega Sicilia Unico and Valbuena, as well as wine for their sister property, Bodegas Alion.

Founded on an unwavering commitment to quality and the pursuit of excellence, Vega Sicilia’s guiding principle is that “the best wine is still to be made”.
