Vega Sicilia, Riserva Especial, 2019 Release, Three Vintage Blend, 2006, 2007, 2009, NV

  Vega Sicilia

Reserva Especial 2019 is the estate’s legendary cuvee and the 2019 release is the product of the 2006, 2007 and 2009 vintages, the majority of which is the 100-point 2006. The 2019 release is perhaps the finest Reserva Especial we can remember. Deep yet succulent red and blue fruit, violet and lavender all vie for attention with bitter chocolate, black plum and wild cherries singing on the palate. Perfectly integrated tannins and a fine supple acidity accentuates its deftly saline, mineral finish. Stunning.

Contains Sulphites.

About Vega Sicilia

Founded in 1864, 118 years before the Ribera del Duero region was demarcated, Vega Sicilia are and always have been the pace setters in the region. Their 250 hectares of vines are planted with Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec and impressively they are the only Bodega to have their own cooperage. These staggeringly concentrated, complex and robust wines are aged for a minimum of five years in barrel before bottling.

Appellation: Ribera del Duero

One of the leading wine regions in spain, Ribera del Duero specialises in the production of powerful red wines from the local variety of Tempranillo, Tinto Fino. A real challenger to Rioja in terms of quality this is an area that at first sight looks like a hostile place to grow vines. The vines are grown at altitudes of between 700 and 850m and searing day time temperatures are followed by extremely cold nights. The wines that emerge are firm, deeply coloured, ageworthy, and some of Spains most exciting and longlived.
