The Unico is always at least 10 years old, sometimes more, upon release. The wines are truly remarkable with enormous complexity, intensity and richness. The soft velvety texture, gorgeous mature flavours of black fruit, leather and oak are absolutely unique.

Wine AdvocateThe 1975 Unico was tasted in January 2012 and is a blend of 70% Tinto Fino, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Malbec and Albillo that was picked from October 8. The bottom line is that this is a delicious Unico. It appears more mature than the 1974 poured alongside, but don't let that fool you. The nose is soft and mellow with kirsch, liquorice and dried Italian meats that are later augmented by a touch of eucalyptus. The palate has a sorbet-like freshness on the entry: fresh and enticing with voluptuous candied red fruits towards the finish that has a Burgundy-like texture. It even seems to gain greater weight with time. Superb. 44,750 bottles produced. Drink now-2025+.
