    January 10, 2017 - This is a "wow" wine. Very complex, perfect texture, great nose, wish I had more

    December 30, 2016 - December 2016
    From magnum, this is the most massive young Vega I have ever tatsted, looking back the 1994 was a big baby but this seems to have 25% more of everthing thing and it is more modern than the 1994 was ten years ago.
    3 time I try this over the past 2 years, If you have some you better forget about it at least another 8 years.
    Time will tell if it goes to 100/100, at the moment it is difficult to see through the structure/tannins/fruit, it is allready stunning, so it might go to be one ot the greatest Vega's of all time.

    October 19, 2016 - Vega Sicilia Unico Dinner with Pablo Alvarez (Betony): Comparable to nose on the '07 but less over the top. Striking tannin and drinking very very dry. Winemaker and owner say this should theoretically be the best of the three in the first flight. It is certainly huge, just hard to get over how dry it is. New French and American oak... from Ohio. Appropriately described by one guest as a 'beast'.

    September 18, 2016 - After decanted 2h. Young, with giant potential. Not rustic like older vintages in the first stage of evolution. Until now, the best Unico of 21 century. Wait 5-10y
