Vega Sicilia Unico Reserva Especial Edición 2020
Este es el vino sin añada de Vega Sicilia. En su edición 2020, se han escogido 59 barricas de las añadas 2008, 2009 y 2010 para crear un blend muy expresivo. Cuenta la crítica especializada que el resultado de este coupage es muy similar a lo que nos encontraremos en Unico 2010, con notas muy elegantes en nariz y un ataque de cuerpo medio en boca.

Opinión de los críticos
To be released in 2020, the NV Único Reserva Especial 2020 Release is a non-vintage blend of 59 barrels from 2008, 2009 and 2010, mostly Tempranillo with some Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine has been getting closer to the style of the Único, and the blend is from vintages very close to the current release of Único, but somehow this year I think the blend has added some complexity to the bottled wine, which has the heart and soul of the 2010 vintage. In fact, they told me they are keeping more wine to have some older vintages to blend for this Reserva Especial, because in the last few years, the wine has been a little too young for the style that it used to have in the past. This has finesse and some of the Burgundian style of the blends of yesteryear. 17,071 bottles and 214 magnums produced. It was bottled in June 2016.
The 2021 release of this legendary non-vintage blend of Tinto Fino and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the best Reserva Especials I've tasted, fully justifying the use of a semisolera system at Vega Sicilia. Based on the 2009, 2010 and 2011 harvests, with bits and pieces from other years, it's a wonderfully complex, balsamic red with aromas of tobacco leaf and sweet spices, layers of supple red fruits, savoury umami tannins, scent
