Characteristics of Monopole Clásico
Monopole Clásico is a white wine produced by CVNE (Winemaking Company of Northern Spain), in Haro, D.OCa. Rioja.
CVNE (Winemaking Company of Northern Spain) is an old winery of Barrio de La Estación, in Haro. It was founded in 1879. It is the fifth generation who manages the business of this company, which is listed on the stock market since 1997. It currently manages around 545 hectares, located in the subareas of La Rioja Alta and La Rioja Alavesa. The vines where this winery gets their grapes to produce their wines are planted on clayey-calcareous, clayey-ferrous and alluvial soils, with a predominant Atlantic climate.
Monopole Clásico is a wine mainly made from Viura, manually harvested and placed in 20-kg boxes. After soft pressing, the must is transferred to concrete deposits where it is left to settle. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steal deposits, and it is aged on its fine lees in used 300 and 500-litre barrels for around 8 months.
Monopole Clásico is a complex, elegant and fresh wine. Spectacular on the nose, with aromas of ripe white fruit, dried fruit and a slight spiciness. The small amount of Chamomile from Sanlúcar de Barrameda gives a salty finish, surprising and delicious.

After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Qa Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
La Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
Cvne is the winery that gave rise to the company in 1879. And it still retains its original site: the wine Station District of Haro in Rioja Alta. The Haro winery consists of a set of buildings and drafts, most of the nineteenth century, arranged around a courtyard. Above them were built pavilions processing, bottling and shipping of wine that are now preserved.
