Vega Sicilia 'Unico' 1970 Ribera del Duerou. 5vts, 5ts, slightly bin-soiled and damp-stained labels, 1 of which nicked, 1 slightly nicked capsule, 1 slightly wine-stained capsule, otherwise excellent levels, appearance, color, and clarity70% Tinto Fino, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, Malbec and Albillo. Superb aromatic bouquet. So sweet and seductive. So absolutely round and complete that it is 'spheric'! A spicy infusion and a giant of a wine. A magnum drunk with Scottish woodcock was divine, with a nose of blackberries in liqueur and a taste of wine gums and liquorice - glorious rich glycerol all the way. In 2013, incredibly multi-dimensional nose and a milk chocolate, youthful taste of pure bliss. This is always landmark Vega, staying its ground in regal fashion.
