Vega Sicilia Unico Reserva Especial Non Vintage (2023 Release)

9 units available online.
Product description
This is a non-vintage Vega Sicilia and a tribute to tradition. Unico Reserva Especial is a true homage to the history of Spanish wine, perfectly combining the characteristics of different Unico vintages. Only the best Unico vintages are used to produce this iconic and remarkably complex wine. It is a blend of time, virtues, experiences, and emotions that shape the most profound nature of a proprietary, unique style: the Vega Sicilia style. Unico Reserva Especial 2023 is made up of the 2009, 2011 and 2012 vintages.

97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The NV Unico Reserva Especial 2023 Release is a blend produced with vintages 2009, 2011 and 2012, in search of a house style. It's a blend of Tinto Fino with some Cabernet Sauvignon with 14% alcohol, a pH of 3.85 and 5.2 grams of acidity (measured in tartaric acid per liter of wine); so, it's a slightly lighter version of Reserva Especial. When in theory they used three warm, ripe and powerful vintages, the blend is not excessively powerful, but the longer elevage has polished that power and delivered a classical and proportioned wine, aromatic, spicy, with the Vega nose and a velvety palate with very fine tannins and great elegance.

97 Points - Wine Spectator

Ripe and appealing on the nose, with notes of date and dark chocolate that also show on the palate, joining a core of bitter cherry reduction, mandarin orange peel, dried mint and mineral flavors. Seamless and silky, with a plush edge to the firm, fine tannins. Long and expansive on the focused, spiced finish.
