Bodegas Vega Sicilia 2008 - Valbuena 5º Año 1.5 L
Region: Ribera del Duero
Varietal: Tempranillo; Merlot
Size: 1.5 L
Vega Sicilia makes three cuvées: Unico is the flagship, and the Reserva Especial is a blend of several of the best vintages. Traditionally they would be aged for 10 years or more before release, although this has been reduced in recent vintages. The junior wine, Valbuena, is made from younger vines, and is released after five years in American oak.
