Verum Las Tinadas 2019
Monovarietal de Airén elaborado con uva procedente de viñedos de más de 70 años plantados sobre viñedos en pie franco. Ha descansado, además, durante 4 meses en tinajas de barro. Vino de alta intensidad aromática y untuosidad en boca que marida bien con la gastronomía mediterránea.

Opinión de los críticos
The first single-vineyard Airén is the 2019 Las Tinadas Airén de Pie Franco, but more vintages should follow in the future. Pie Franco means "ungrafted" in Spanish, which is how the vineyard was planted. His grandparents said it was the best Airén vineyard they had, and now it's organically farmed. The grapes fermented in a 5,000-liter stainless steel vat with yeasts selected from this very same vineyard that they saw were unique. They matured the wine with lees for four months in 100-year-old 4,500-liter tinajas, following the local tradition. The 70-year-old vines are planted on limestone-rich soils at 740 meters in altitude. It was very surprising, serious austere and mineral, a balanced and fresh white from a warm place and a warm vintage, with insinuating aromas and terrific balance in the palate, focused, long and tasty. Who could imagine Airén could be this exciting? 7,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2020.
