Tasting Notes of Vega Sicilia Valbuena
Deep cherry red with cardinal trim. Bright and alive. Deep nose with very ripe red fruits. Wood is present without being predominant.
In the mouth it is complex, fleshy and with structure. Wood aging is perfectly combined with the base fruit. Two characteristics make it different, the first is that there is no hint of greenery and the second is its completely velvety structure.
