The dry white 2021 Monopole is a wine that has been produced since 1915, the oldest brand for white wine in Spain. It's classical with varietal character, young and fresh. The grapes, mostly Viura, were picked between September 21st and October 19th, and the wine achieved 13% alcohol, keeping a pH of 3.3 after fermenting in stainless steel, without using any oak, to keep the primary, fruit and floral characteristics of the grape. They consider 2021 a very good year for whites, with good freshness, but more heterogeneous, and Víctor Urrutia, CVNE's CEO, favors 2020 against 2021. It's primary, clean and fresh, with a tasty salty twist. Among the finest Monopole of recent years. 300,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2022. ... More details

Region: La Rioja

La Rioja is undoubtedly the jewel in the crown of Spain's wine regions, and the deliciously drinkable, complex and fascinating single red wines and blended wines of this special region have gone down in history as some of the finest on earth. La Rioja is located in the north of Spain, close to the Atlantic coast, but shielded from the cold and wet weather by the expansive Cantabrian mountains. As such, the climatic conditions in La Rioja are ideal for ripening the Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes used in the production of the fine red wines the region is famous for. Wineries in La Rioja take great pride in their heritage and traditions, and the winemakers of the region employ a range of time honored techniques alongside more modern methods to make the most of their superb crops each year.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
