Tempranillo Ribera Del Duero Spain
Bodega Alion is a stylistically and regionally significant wine, adapted to the international taste at the end of the millennium, shaped by a standard of quality that knows no bounds, but which bears the mark of the character and personality of the River Duero whence it originates.
Bodega Alion was born next to the River Duero, in the vein of Vega Sicilia, but with a vocation that is independent and innovative. Alion's very beginnings boasted the aromas and tastes of a wine that was open, modern and attractive, full of strength and exuberance, with the exclusive expression of the Tinto Fino grape, a concept that was very different from the tradition of Vega Sicilia. Tinto Fino bears the character of River Duero, treated to the most up to date oenological practices, a year's maturation in exclusively new French oak barrels and a further twelve months ageing in bottle under the estate cellars, achieving a wine that is at once, monumental and refined.
Concentrated dark, colour. An intensity that's rare for a Ribera del Duero, it exhibits roasted expressions of Tempranillo and quality new French oak. On the palate, sweetened tannins of concentrated black fruit flavours blend with the dry creamy tannins. Alion is full of flavour, fleshy and strong, revealing a truly engaging complexity of fruit, the tannins will support at least ten years ageing.
