2009 Vega Sicilia Unico Ribera del Duero - Spain Red

St Barth’s Wine


La Bodega Vega Sicilia is much more than a winery, is a legend, synonymous with prestige, it is the most prized Spanish wine. The story goes back to 1862 when Eloy Lencanda founded the winery in Valbuena de Duero as we know it now. After several owners, who knew how to forge the name of Bodega Vega Sicilia, turning it into a myth. In 1982, the winery was acquired by the Álvarez family. After its fermentation, it goes through what is probably the world's longest aging of red wine, almost 10 years between wood and bottle.

The different stages take place in different types of barrels: American and French wood, new and used 225-liter barrels, 20,000-litre vats, each batch is what determines the type of wood and the time spent in each container after the stage in the wood, it is aged in the bottle to complete a long and complex aging process. It will normally spend 6 years in wood and three in the bottle.

94% Tinto Fino and 6% Cabernet-Sauvignon

This 2009 has good ripeness and deep fruit presence.
On the nose with rich red and dark plums, subtly earthy spice, cedar and fresh tobacco. On the palate and very ripe dark-plum, blueberry and cherry flavors.
The tannins are fresh, very long and carry flavors deep. Natural freshness and effortless power too.
