Bodegas Alion 2013

MOP 710.00

Once the wine is removed from the barrels, it will remain no less than 15 months in the stillness of the bottle, where it will end up assembling all the primary aromas of the fruit with the hues from its delicate ageing, resulting in an intense, complex and fleshy wine, but where the elegance is a distinguishing feature and hallmark of the winery.

Description

“Bodegas Alión was formed in 1986 as a winery which would be run independently to its big brother, the great Vega Sicilia.
This 85-hectare wine estate was founded by the Álvarez family (Pablo Alvarez, the owner, pictured right, who also owns the Toro EstateBodegas Pintia) to provide a modern expression of Ribera del Duero wine.
35 hectares of the estate is located around the winery, with a further 50 hectares dedicated to Alión within the historic Vega Sicilia vineyards.
Unlike Vega Sicilia, where we find a merging of the traditional and modern winemaking techniques, Alión is made using state-of-the-art equipment. Forward and uncompromising, these are wines with impressive frames and show an alternative side of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo).”
