Dear Wine Lover,
We just managed to put our hands on an additional parcel of the best Unico vintage of the last recent years, UNICO 2006! We went sold out immediately when we offered the first parcel some months ago. This phenomenal wine from Vega Sicilia is probably the best that has been produced in recent years according to James Suckling, who awarded it with 100 perfect points, followed by The Wine Advocate of Robert Parker with incredible 98 points! Mr Suckling never rated any other Unico vintage with 100 points and for the Wine Advocate the 98 points are the second highest score given to Unico only after the 100 points received by the 1962 vintage making this the best recent Unico vintage available on the market.
Unico needs no intorduction, as it is one if not THE most iconic wine from Spain, and with this new vintage 2006, released after their 2007, 2008 and 2005 vintage, Vega Sicilia brings this wine to another level. James Suckling that he states: Drink forever and A wine you want to spend time with. Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate writes: It has to be one of the best recent vintages of Único!
If there ever was a Unico vintage you should have in the cellar, this is IT! The request is incredibly high on this one, so please let us know as soon as possible, if we can secure you a case ot two of this becoming future legend

James Suckling 100 points: Incredibly floral and beautiful with dark berry, spice, cedar and mint. Chinese plums. Asian spices. Bark. Tea. Full body, dense and so soft and complex. The finish goes on for minutes. Endless and fine. January 2017 release. This reminds me of the gorgeous 1991 or 1964. Drink forever. A wine that you want to spend time with.
Robert Parker 98 points: The iconic wine from Vega Sicilia in the market in 2018 is the 2006 Único, which was released after the sale of the 2007 and 2008 vintages because they thought it needed more time in bottle. 2006 was an early vintage, with the harvest beginning the 9th of September. This year the bottled blend is 94% Tinto Fino, the local strain of Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero, with 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has a long élevage, around ten years split between new and old barriques (French and American), in 20,000-liter oak vats and bottle. It had a very developed and classical nose, very expressive, ripe and exuberant with an herbal twist, combining classical and modern characteristics and with a good balance between youth and development. It's a more classical expression of the Vega Sicilia character, closer to the wines from yesteryear than the last few vintages. It has to be one of the best recent vintages of Único, for me clearly better than 2005. This 2006 was bottled in June 2012. 93,993 bottles, 2,552 magnums, 165 double magnums and six imperials were produced.
