The regular white 2019 Monopole, a brand they registered in 1915, is pure Viura produced in a clean and precise style, fermenting in stainless steel at a low temperature to keep very primary aromas. They want it to be a classical white from Rioja but young and unoaked, not like the style they created in the 1980s, because in the past it was the Clásico, with oak (and Manzanilla), whereas in 2019, the wine has a clean and fruit-driven nose, reflecting a very healthy harvest. The finish is very serious, dry and chalky with a salty twist. It's austere and has good acidity. It's very easy to drink now and should age, but not in the same graceful style as the Clásico; it has the spirit of the Clásico but in a young style. This overdelivers.
