However, the crown jewel of Vega Sicilia's collection is Único, a complex blend transcending vintages. Each sip of this exceptional wine narrates a story of ripe grapes, meticulous craftsmanship, and patient aging in oak.

Production Process

The winery's meticulous production process begins with carefully hand-picked grapes, which undergo a 12-hour chilling period to preserve their vibrant fruity character. A meticulous double sorting process follows, ensuring that only the highest-quality grapes are used. Subsequently, cool maceration precedes fermentation in oak wood vats. Malolactic fermentation occurs in wooden containers, followed by a 12-month aging process in a blend of French and American oak.
