Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" 5ano 1988 Ribera Del Duero

Vega Sicilia is Spain's most renowned producer and traces its roots back to 1864.  American wine guru Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) has called Vega Sicilia "One of the world's most iconic wines'.

Vega Sicilia is noted for its patience in winemaking and willingness to hold onto their inventory and age their wines in the barrel - sometimes for several decades - before they release their wines to the market.  Vega Sicilia produces three wines: "Unico" Gran Reserve, "Unico" Reserva Especial and "Valbuena".

This bottle, a 1988 vintage "Valbuena" 5 ano, is predominantly Tempranillo with a small amount of Merlot and aged for 5 years in oak.  Robert Parker rated Ribera Del Duero's 1988 vintage an 87/100.
