Once again, wine and art join with the purpose of demonstrating the virtues of Tempranillo grapes from the most prestigious wine producing regions in the north of Spain.
It was one of those quiet moments, rare in a fast-paced world, when the paths of Mariano Rinaldi Goñi and the Solís Family crossed– culminating in something no one could have foreseen. After several creative meetings between them, the project was formed in 2012 named as “La Única”. They developed the first blend of which today we are delighted to present the fourth edition.

La Única 3º Ed.
60% Tinto Fino – Ribera del Duero
10% Tinta de Toro – Toro
30% Tempranillo – Rioja
To create this exceptional wine, it goes through five tasting phases to reach the optimal result. In the initial phase, between 15 and 20 different wines are selected. La Única is a result of an exhaustive selection of different tempranillos tasted and analyzed by a team of 32 tasters of national and international prestige. Due to the unusual circumstances of 2020, the tasting was held in Spain in person at the Bodegas de Pagos del Rey in Ribera del Duero and with links via videoconference with England, Germany, the United States and China. Among the most notable figures, mention and thank the presence of Philippa Carr MW, David Schwarzwalder, Jose Peñín and Isabel Mijares.
Each label is painted by hand, as in the previous edition, by Mariano Rinaldo Goñi, an Argentinean artist who lives in Berlin.
The creative name of “La Única” was an idea of the artist who propose in its first edition of 600 bottles a unique and exclusive label painted by hand. The following editions, Rinaldi designed new labels carefully choosing the color, which for this fourth edition will be purple, and will see the light with a limited edition of 15,000 bottles and that will be marketed at the end of 2021.
