You will like to know that...

In the beginning the Alión 2015 was considered a "second class" wine and was the ace in the hole of the Vega Sicilia wineries; however, as time went on and it began to obtain recognition among its consumers, it managed to position itself as an authentic wine with its own stamp: a renowned red wine in the Ribera del Duero.

The Alión 2015 comes from vineyards that are between 25 and 30 years old and that exalt the richness of the Tinto FIno variety. The harvest is manual and a careful selection of the fruit is made to guarantee the best possible quality. The end result is an elegant, intense, and balanced red that will perfectly accompany your barbecue and cooked meats.

Alion 2015

A bright deep red color with streaks of violet. Full and elegant on the nose, with a wide range of aromas, such as vanilla, ripe fruits, compote and syrups. The palate is opulent and elegant with harmonious tannins providing a subtle backbone to the wine; great aromatic persistence in the mouth. Designed to drink well on release, the tannins will nevertheless support at least 10 years further ageing.

Alion 2015

The Alion is a great expression of Ribera del Duero's top class. It has a wonderful bouquet of black plums, violets and tobacco waft from the glass with such distinction that Alion is the absolute flagship (and sample) for many of his colleagues in the Ribera. The palate is medium-bodied with soft, silky tannins World class and just a very big glass. A wine that blooms in the glass.

Alion 2015

- The Bodega belongs, like the famous Vega Sicilia winery, the family Álvarez
- is named Aliundoacute n to the city of Leon, the Geburtßtätte of Companies patron David Álvarez
- Its 100% Tinto Fino becomes the expression of perfect elegance and finesse. Hardly loud primary aromas, instead, completely fused together balsamic notes and delicate Rösttöne
- Terrific
- Allergens: contains sulfites

A powerful wine, structured and serious. The Vega Sicilia eonologue of this wine works like any other, with passion and expertise. A wine that has become one of the great wines of Spain in a very short time.
