Winemaking Team Notes: "Unico remains true to a clear and well-defined style, with an inimitable character and style; elegance, strength, ageing capacity... Unico remains true to a clear and well-defined style, with an inimitable character and style; elegance, strength, ageing capacity... It offers an infinite complexity that is gradually revealed, in every sip, the palate immensely silky and elegant, and has an ageing capacity that only a handful of wines in the world can claim. A unique and timeless taste that has elevated it to among the aristocracy of the great classic wines."
Vintage Notes: "A normal winter for our area in terms of temperature and rainfall, which gave way to a frost-free spring with temperatures somewhat higher than usual, bringing the plant's cycle forward in this season. Summer started rather hot at the beginning of July, only to return to average temperatures in the second fortnight. The veraison date was around 12 August, which is the norm in this area. The end of ripening was slow and progressive, with no rainfall and good temperatures that meant we could wait for the optimal ripening point for each plot. This resulted in a very healthy grape with a great balance of components, such as high colour indices and good acidity levels. In short, an excellent vintage."
Critic Tasting Note: "A vintage that follows the historic 2010. It might not be considered a mythical year but, since it was a cooler vintage, 2011 is built on precision and elegance. Five years in wood (of different formats, the last two years in large vats) and four years in the bottle. This is an Unico with a very subtle, polished and delicate style. It is extremely fragrant, more aromatic than textured, subtler than the magnificent 2010, but approaching it in quality. Great complexity and balance, with deep aromas of cedar, cigar box, incense. Tertiary profile and with fruit that has evolved and is fully integrated into the wine. A vintage that's all about perfume." - Jancis Robinson, 18.5/20 (7/2020)
