Palate Profile

Rated 99 Points By James Suckling

Unico Reserva Especial is a true reflection and tribute to the history of Spanish wine, perfectly combining the characteristics of different vintages of UNICO. Only UNICO´s best vintages are used to produce this legendary and remarkably complex wine; a blend of many years, virtues, experiences and emotions that only expresses the most profound essence of a unique, inimitable style, the Vega Sicilia style.

It is a non-vintage Vega Sicilia and a respect for tradition. Unico Reserva Especial 2019 is composed of 59 barrels including vintages 2006, 2007 and 2009.

These wines are ready for drinking now but may potentially be stored for approximately 40-60 years if kept in optimum conditions 12-15 ºC at 60% relative humidity, and constant temperature, protected from direct light.

Critic Awards

Vintages blended seamlessly together. Unique to Vega Sicilia. The tobacco, spice and earthy depth here is terrific. Very complex iodine and almost oyster shell minerals. An array of red and black cherries and plums. Very complex. Very fresh. A blend of 2006, 2007 and 2009.

It has a similar character to the 2009, perhaps a little more subtle and elegant but not really more complex, with some tannins and a medium-bodied palate.

This is a taste of 19th-century Spain, when it was accepted practice to blend vintages to improve a sketchy year or, in this case, to offer the best possible wine from the cellar. It has the supple luxury of the best Spanish leather, the spicy warmth of dried figs and dates yielding a cool, silken freshness, as if oxygen could reinvest that fruit with juiciness.

This red is rich yet refined. Cigar box, orange peel, licorice and spice notes frame a core of cherry, dried herb, mint and mineral flavors. The wine is firm but polished, with well-integrated tannins and lively acidity. Old-school, harmonious and graceful. Tinto Fino and Cabernet Sauvignon.
