From the 1,000 hectares which composes the Vega Sicilia estate, 210 are used for vine-growing, coexisting 19 soil types and 57 plots containing very specific characteristics. The influence of the Duero River's flow and the passage of time have been vital in developing these soils. Forty of these hectares are used to produce Unico, with at least ten years of ageing, in both barrel and bottle, considered to be one of the world's longest. We use new and used French and American 225-litre oak barrels and 22,000-litre casks; a long, complex yet beautiful process, that makes these wines outstanding when released and eternal when aged. 2010 is a powerful, concentrated and ample vintage. Vega Sicilia Unico 2010 gains nuances, given sufficient time to open. A wine to enjoy long-term.
