Vega Sicilia 1998 Unico Ribera del Duero, Spain

    The star of Ribera del Duero, Vega Sicilia has been in the possession of the Alvarez family since 1982. Most connoisseurs regard this as Spain’s greatest winery and Unico—which is aged for a minimum of 10 years and can last half a century—as the finest wine it produces. The 1998 vintage combines pronounced notes of currant, licorice, leather, and black truffle.
