Producer: Bodegas Alión
Alión is formed by a careful selection of plots spread across the best of Ribera del Duero. These plots, which complement each other, joined by the same viticulture as Vega Sicilia, have given rise to firmly structured wines. Of outstanding personality, lots in Alion are guided through 12 months aging in French oak barrels and 5% American oak, to obtain maximum complexity from the diversity of soil.
Tasting Notes: This vintage was aged in 80% new oak barrels and the remaining in used barriques attaining, without a doubt, the most universal wine of the house; later resting in the bottle until reaching a perfect stage for consumption. Alión is a fleshy, complex, intense wine, where elegance plays a differentiating role and is the winery´s hallmark. It is definitely modern, genuine, and multicultural in character. A perfect pairing. Alión 2015 is particularly rich, concentrated. A very harmonious wine.
