The estate in Ribera del Duero is known for its dense, complex red wines made principally from the Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) grape variety. Its top wine, Unico, is one of Spain's most expensive and sought-after wines. The Vega Sicilia estate covers around 1000 hectares (2470 acres) of which around 210ha (520 acres) is under vine. It has been in operation since 1864, long before the development of the appellation in which it resides, and the current wine styles date from the 1910s. Quality has become more consistent since the current owners, the Alvarez family, took over in 1982. The vineyards are planted to around 80 percent Tempranillo with the remainder taken up by Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and tiny amounts of Malbec. Yields are kept low, aided by green harvesting and painstaking grape selection. Winery operations are just as meticulous, with a complicated series of rackings from large barrels to barriques, mixing old and new oak and leading to wines that are capable of long aging.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-03-09T13:28:35-05:00","created_at":"2023-02-25T13:38:06-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_Spain","NK2502","Other_Wine","Producer_Vega Sicilia","Region_Ribera del Duero","Source_Hedonism0123","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Tempranillo"],"price":279899,"price_min":279899,"price_max":279899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42804056850570,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Vega Sicilia | Unico Reserva Especial 2022 Release ('08, '10, '11) - NV","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":279899,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/3_77ae2710-a92b-4f6c-af1a-700ac62366da.jpg?v=1677350365"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/3_77ae2710-a92b-4f6c-af1a-700ac62366da.jpg?v=1677350365","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"Vega Sicilia | Unico Reserva Especial 2022 Release ('08, '10, '11) - NV at CaskCartel.com","id":24290416853130,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"width":600,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/3_77ae2710-a92b-4f6c-af1a-700ac62366da.jpg?v=1677350365"},"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/3_77ae2710-a92b-4f6c-af1a-700ac62366da.jpg?v=1677350365","width":600}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: Vega Sicilia | Unico Reserva Especial 2022 Release ('08, '10, '11) - NV\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSweet-berry, walnut, licorice and violet aromas that follow through to a full body with round, chewy tannins that are polished and beautiful.
