Of the 1,000 hectares making up the Vega Sicilia estate, 210 are used for wine growing, and there are 19 soil types divided for management purposes into 52 plots with very specific characteristics. The influence of the Duero river’s flow and the passage of time have been vital in forming these soils. 140 of these hectares are employed to produce Valbuena 5º. A unique, magical estate, which alongside etraordinary vineyard management, enables the production of legendary wines. Valbuena is the pure epression of red wine at Vega Sicilia, with an ageing process, from the barrel to the bottle, which lasts five years and gives the wine its name: Valbuena 5º (5th). Both and used 225-litre barrels of French and American and used wooden barrels, and 20,000-litre vats. A long and comple process for a great wine. Valbuena always stands its ground, whole, elegant and serious. A conquering wine. An opulent year, concentrated, impetuous and, without a doubt, a long haul journey.

Unico is a wine for all eternity. Only a handful of terroirs worldwide are able to match wine’s etraordinary ageing capacity. This is a wine of inimitable style, mature, tremendously elegant and silky, in which the ageing process brings the mystique of the essence to the surface.
