Winemaker Notes

The nose is soft and mellow with kirsch, liquorice and dried Italian meats that are later augmented by a touch of eucalyptus.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1975 Unico was tasted in January 2012 and is a blend of 70% Tinto Fino, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Malbec and Albillo that was picked from October 8. The bottom line is that this is a delicious Unico. It appears more mature than the 1974 poured alongside, but don-t let that fool you. The nose is soft and mellow with kirsch, liquorice and dried Italian meats that are later augmented by a touch of eucalyptus. The palate has a sorbet-like freshness on the entry: fresh and enticing with voluptuous candied red fruits towards the finish that has a Burgundy-like texture. It even seems to gain greater weight with time. Superb. 44,750 bottles produced. Drink now-2025+.

Bodegas Vega Sicilia, Spain
Bodegas Vega Sicilia Winery Image

The foundations of Vega Sicilia's traditions may be found as far back as 1859, when Don Eloy Lecanda Chaves was gifted an estate by his wealthy father. The origins of the Vega Sicilia winery are officially regarded as 1864, which was when Don Eloy Lecanda Chaves returned from his travels in Bordeaux with vine cuttings, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Carmenere - all of which were found in Bordeaux at that time - and, curiously, some Pinot Noir. Regardless of how Pinot Noir arrived, the cuttings were duly propagated and planted at Vega Sicilia, although the Carmenere and Pinot Noir are no longer found in the Vega Sicilia vineyards.

Vega Sicilia's Tempranillo is trained in gobelet fashion, whereas the French varieties are trained in a Guyot system. Green harvesting is employed ruthlessly in order to control yields, and the harvest itself is meticulous. In the winery, such a massive wine will withstand many years in wood and Unico sees a complicated series of rackings from huge barrels to new oak, to used American oak, back to new oak again, and on it goes. Whatever these phases are called, Unico certainly receives very prolonged barrel ageing, with the 1970 seeing over sixteen years! And yet these are not washed out, stretched, overly oaky wines when mature, testimony to the quality of the raw materials on which they are based.

Rioja

Tempranillo

View all products

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
