2004 Unico

By Vega Sicilia Unico

2004 Unico from Vega Sicilia, Ribera del Duero

The 2004 Unico from Vega Sicilia exudes an emblematic presence that echoes the regality of Ribera del Duero's rich viticultural history. Several factors weave together to set it apart: the unique climatic circumstances for this revered vintage, meticulous production methods of Vega Sicilia, and the inherent aura of prestige circumventing this wine from a legendary Spanish domain.

 

A coveted vintage with unique attributes

2004 was marked by a particularly favourable climate across Ribera del Duero. Crisp spring frosts led into an early summer of generous rainfall, perfectly setting the stage for an intensely flavoured harvest in September. These conditions reflected splendidly in the 2004 Unico - its complex bouquet, a harmonious amalgamation of commanding fruit notes intertwined with subtle smoky hues.

 

Artisanship and finesse by Vega Sicilia

The winemaking approach at Vega Sicilia is one borne out of respect for traditional means but not without the intervention of necessary innovation. The 2004 Unico champions Tempranillo in all its glory while inviting a smattering percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon into its blend. This combination culminated in an expression not just unique but one standing amongst the greats - making it an unparalleled investment opportunity for discerning aficionados and collectors alike.

 

Dominance in the glass - 2004 Unico

The elegance and power of the 2004 Unico gracefully coexist in the glass. Its deep ruby robe instantly arrests the eye, while a seductive undercurrent of ripe berries and cassis unfurls on the nose. This first impression evolves over time, revealing darker notes - smoked wood and earth. A full-bodied palate, fresh acidity, considerable tannin structure and a poised long finish make the entire tasting experience one of hedonistic indulgence.

2004 Unico from Vega Sicilia represents one of the finest vintages to emerge from Ribera del Duero. Intrinsic to its charm is the singular character of this blend that rightfully anchors it as an epitome of wine investment in fine Spanish vintages.
