Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5°, 2013

    Fred’s Tasting Note :   

 

This wine is a bit a “baby unico “, but has its own personality . With signs of age , It’s a very elegant and fresh Valbuena, very traditional from what Vega Sicilia usually produces even though that 2013 vintage was definitely not one of the easiest one to manage. But as they like to say, the vintage variation has to show its impact on the wine ! The mouth is velvety, with dark fruit notes, leather and touch of forest floor notes, with very fine and delicate texture, including the tannins and a quite long finish.

Very much enjoyable from one of the iconic historical Domain of Ribera del Duero

FD Rated :  95/100

Cépage : 95% Tinto Fino, ( Tempranillo ), 5% Merlot ( depending on vintages )

Region of Production : Ribera del Duero , SPAIN

The Valbuena Tempranillo is obtained from plots located on gentle concave slopes that descend from the wasteland. Those soils are made up of material that was eroded and accumulated as colluvial on the lower slopes, developing a high profile soil, with a specific important evolution with the formation of a deep calcic horizon

Vinification :

Fermentation at a controlled temperature with native yeast in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation also takes place in stainless steel.

After fermentation, it is aged for 5 years, between wood and in the bottle, which is why it is called Valbuena 5º. French and American wood, new and used 225-litre barrels, 20,000 litre vats, a long and complex process for a great wine.

Agriculture :  Classic
