CVNE Monopole Clásico 2014 MagnumRegular price $91.00
CVNE launched its Monopole wine in 1915. At the time, growing conditions in Spain were cooler than they are now, and it wasn’t uncommon for the region’s grapes to be harvested with much lower sugar levels, and therefore lower alcoholic potential. To give structure and backbone, CVNE added Manzanilla sherry to the white Rioja, and the two wines spent time in oak to ensure harmonious blending. The fortified dry wine was complex, with nutty, saline notes combined with the crisp, green-fruit flavor of Viura grapes.
