La Única is born with a purpose: to display the numerous virtues of the red wines from Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Toro, united for the first time in the same wine.
The varieties of the grape Tempranillo in each of these prestigious wine- making regions are blended in a coupage that shows the best of themselves, making of La Única a wine with a new personality and character.
Wine and art are united in this limited edition of 2,600 bottles. Each label, painted by hand with the colour of “the blood of the land”, symbolizes the origin and history in each drawing.
Experts' hands assembled these wines in a formula of 15% tempranillo from Rioja (2010 vintage), 40% tinto fino from Ribera del Duero (2011 vintage) and 45% tinta de Toro (2011 vintage).
La Única is a selection of the best wines from Pagos del Rey in Fuenmayor (La Rioja), Olmedillo de Roa (Burgos) and Morales de Toro (Zamora).
Ruby red colour wine, with aromas black tea, violet and blackberries and cherry.
Tannins are tasteful and velvety, concentrated but pleasant. The expressive balsamic notes show a combination of mint and dark chocolate. Very fresh and persistent.
This wine is ideal to enjoy on special occasions. This wine makes an excellent accompaniment to the best roasted meats or powerful starters.
Best served at 18 ºC. We recommend that this wine is decanted for at least half an hour before serving.

La Única is then bottled in a limited and exclusive edition of 2,600 units of 750ml bottles, Burgundy style of high quality, natural cork and red wax closure.
About this wine
“While still regarded as young, quality shone through for La Unica. ‘Ripe with dark fruits on the nose, soft, squashy dark berries and plum on the palate, blackened with vanilla oak,’ said team leader Tom Forrest, continuing: ‘Drying tannins on the finish, with nice spice.’ ‘Rich, soft, complex and well balanced,’ confirmed Erik Simonics of The Savoy. ‘Plenty of potential to be bright and beautiful,’ said Bread Street Kitchen’s Timothy Connor”.
