Tasting Notes

The 1996 Unico is from what the Vega Sicilia team calls "an icon vintage". Medium purple in color, it emits a lovely perfume of smoke, mineral, Asian spices, balsamic, and assorted black fruits. Elegant, savory, and intense on the palate, it has enough underlying structure to evolve for another decade and drink well through 2036.
