Vega Sicilia Unico Reserva Especial R.22
The Unico Reserva Especial isn't always made. The wine is a blend of vintages that the winery believes will make the greatest wine on earth. It is numbered in release years, so R.22 is the 2022 release. This wine is a blend of 2008, 2010, and 2011. The combination of the vintages gives this wine the character of the most incredible Bordeaux from one of the most heralded vintages. I like to compare Vega's wines to Latour - due mainly to the walnut element these wines take. This Reserva Especial is one of the rarest wines available. They pop up on auction here and there, but most keep them because they truly know what they are waiting for.
