Be part of the Best Wine Store
Hello Wine Lover!
We are placidly confident that this selection of Tempranillo will be to your liking, below in the details you will find the history of this wonderful Wine Reserve in this Wine Store.
Alion was launched with the 1991 vintage by the famous Vega Sicilia estate. Inspired by the "modern classic" style of top Bordeaux, owner Pablo Alvarez wished to adapt this style of wine to the unique climate and soils in the western Ribera del Duero.
Around half the grapes come from Vega Sicilia vineyards, the other half from Alion's own vineyards near Penafiel. The wine is made by Javier Ausas, head winemaker of Vega Sicilia, at Alion's dedicated, state-of-the-art winery. Alion is certainly a modern wine, an opulent and seductive 100% Tempranillo aged for 14 months in new French oak barrels, but - as one would expect from Vega Sicilia - there is nothing over-the-top about the wine. Not overripe, over extracted or overlooked, it is all about elegance, harmony, class...and sheer hedonistic pleasure
