Producer: Vega Sicilia
Tasting Notes: Valbuena is the pure expression of a red at Vega Sicilia, with an ageing of five years from barrel to bottle, which gives it its name, Valbuena 5º (5th year). 225-litre French and American oak barrels, both new and used, 8,500-litre vats are used in a long and complex process for perhaps, the wine which has evolved the most over the last few years.
Valbuena 5º presents its splendor in each vintage and a direct view of the greatness of its soil, where the weather conditions each year make a clear distinction on the vintage.
Thanks to the extraordinary job in the vineyard and ageing in tanks on its second year, today´s Valbuena 5º 2014 is velvety, complex, harmonious. A very fine wine.
