Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5 Ribera del Duero 2012

Tasting Notes: 
Valbuena, is the purest expression of the Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) in Vega Sicilia. Tinto Fino is clearly the predominant wine in the assemblage of the varieties that make up this magnificent wine. The other variety used is Merlot, which is added to a greater or lesser extent depending on the vintage. After fermentation, it is aged for five years, between wood and in the bottle, which is why it is called Valbuena 5º. French and American wood, new and used 225-litre barrels, 20,000 litre vats, a long and complex 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.
