Miguel Merino created his own winery in a restored farmhouse where he built a small vinification plant and barrel-ageing cellar. He started to buy grapes grown on small plots near Briones to produce well-made, modern wines and now owns and runs one of the smallest, youngest and most prestigious wineries in Spain.
Unnum is a true signature of both vineyard (Mendiguerra and La Loma) and vintage. The winemaking is adapted to the vintage condition and designed to respect and maintain the extraordinary characteristics of the vineyard. Aged in cask for 11 months in mostly French, oak barrels. Powerful, intense black fruits on the nose, spice and coffee notes are balanced by fresh mint and liquorice on the palate. Less than 6000 bottles are usually produced if the vintage allow it.
