Impeccably crafted by Vega Sicilia, the Valbuena 5º Ribera Del Duero GVS is an exceptional testament of Spain's winemaking legacy. This wine showcases a rich fruit concentration, layered complexity, and a seamless blend of power and elegance.

Tasting Notes from the Curator

The Valbuena 5º Ribera Del Duero GVS captivates the senses with a symphony of aromas, beginning with saccharine allure of ripe blackberries, weaving a thread of intoxicating floral violets, endemic sandalwood and homey vanilla. The palate mirrors the enticing promise of the bouquet, enveloping your senses with a lush tapestry of blackberries and cherries interlaced amidst a vibrant tapestry of red fruit flavors. Underlying hints of subtle spices, including whispers of black pepper, tantalizing cinnamon, and warm cloves add depth, while nuances of oak impart a structured complexity. The seductive mouthfeel is refined with supple tannins and a lingering finish that is linear and long. The texture is both slightly chewy and unctuously smooth, providing a tactile sensation that only heightens the wine’s appeal.

    Vega Sicilia: A Chronology of Commitment

Established in 1864, its founder, Don Eloy Lecanda y Chaves, envisioned producing exceptional wines in Spain. That vision rang true, leading to Vega Sicilia’s recognition as one of Spain’s most prestigious wineries. Centuries later, in 1982, the Alvarez family took over the winery. Their dedication to preserving Vega Sicilia’s reputation ensured the continued excellence and prestige of its wines. One of their most notable wines, the Unico, undergoes an aging process of at least 10 years before release. This practice is continued with Valbuena 5º Ribera Del Duero GVS, conferring a notable longevity and complexity.

Storage Instructions

Valbuena 5º Ribera Del Duero GVS should be stored at a consistent temperature of 12°C - 16°C (54°F - 61°F) in a dark, stable, and well-ventilated environment with moderate humidity and minimal vibration.
