Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5°
- Ribera del Duero, Spain
Vega Sicilia is the most significant wine producer in Spain, considered amongst the greatest in the world. Their property is found 700 metres above sea level in the shallow Spanish part of the Duero River valley on the high remote plateau of Castilla y Leon. This unique climate delivers cold nights and hot days, allowing the grapes to become beautifully ripe and develop wonderful tannic structure, with a delightful backbone of acidity and therefore superb balance.
The Valbuena 5° takes its name from the village where it is produced. It is aged for less time than the Unico or the Reserva Especial with the 5° designating the years it has been aged before release.
