Marks and reviews
Since its acquisition by the Álvares family in 1982, Vega Sicilia has continued to grow and establish its international reputation. Today, a continual pursuit of excellence, harmony with nature, hard work and unfailing commitment make this Spanish estate a prestigious name. Over the years, other wineries like Pintia have come to embrace and enhance the Vega Sicilia philosophy. Thus, the extreme care taken in the vineyards as well as in the vinification process is the sign of great Spanish wines from unique lands.
Macán de Vega Sicilia & Rothschild is a Rioja wine that is the result of a close Franco-Spanish collaboration between two distinguished winemaking institutions. Initiated in 2004, the joint venture between Vega Sicilia and Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild brings out all the nuances and complexity of Spain's finest terroirs in wines made from a meticulous plot selection.
This 2018 vintage is made from grapes from the San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Ábalos, Elvillar and Leza plots.
Intense and aromatic, the nose releases fruity and balsamic scents.
The palate delights with its structure and complexity. Scents of blackberries, blackcurrant jelly, plum jam and cherries mingle harmoniously with vanilla, spice and grilled notes. Throughout the tasting the palate unveils subtle notes of freshly ground coffee, dried Mediterranean herbs and a delicious graphite hint at the finish.
For the best tasting, serve at 18°C.
