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.

This is still very tight and closed with so much depth and beauty. The linear line to this is very vertical and draws you down. It shows intense blackberry, dark-chocolate, hazelnut and walnut character. Full body. Chewy yet extremely polished. Precise. Shows decadence. (12/2019)
99 points James Suckling

Opaque violet. Intensely perfumed, expansive black and blue fruit preserve, potpourri, Moroccan spice and botanical herb scents are complemented by smoky mineral and vanilla flourishes. Sappy, penetrating and deeply concentrated on the palate, offering vibrant, mineral-laced black currant, bitter cherry, chewing tobacco, mocha and floral pastille flavors that deepen and turn sweeter on the back half. Shows superb focus and vibrant, floral lift on the wonderfully long, youthfully tannic finish, which leaves behind cherry liqueur, candied violet and spicecake notes. (JR) (2/2021)
