ABOUT THE WINE
Arguably the most prestigious Spanish wine estate, Vega Sicilia was founded in 1864 by Don Eloy Lecanda y Chaves, who brought cuttings from France and planted them, along with native Tempranillo, in the stark landscape of Ribera del Duero. Favoured by the Spanish dictator Franco, Vega Sicilia survived the 20th Century with its lands and reputation intact, and after several changes in ownership, is now the centre of a web of wineries operating under the banner of Tempus Vega Sicilia. Sourced from the oldest vines on their Ribera estate, the Unico sees exceptionally long ageing in new and old barrels, and in bottle, before release.

TASTING NOTES
Aromas rise from the glass like a heady perfume, with raspberry, mulberry and beautiful floral character, as well as sweet spice from oak-influence. The palate leads with liquorice, strawberry and black cherry-chocolate, and finishes with tobacco, cedar wood and blackberries; exceptional balance between power and elegance. Finely textured, with delicate tannin and superb structure for long-ageing.

FOOD PAIRING
Best suited to beef, roast boar or a mushroom-based vegetarian dish.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Compared to the legendary 1970 and 1994 vintages. Drink 2016-2029.
