Bodegas Alion Ribera Del Duero
Ribera Del Duero
An exclusively Tempranillo wine, Bodega Alion caused a great stir amongst the industry press after their inaugural release. Fruit is collated from the most splendid vineyards along Ribera Del Duero, treated to a traditional, old world vinification, followed by a term of extravagant new oak maturation and a year or more in the stillness of the bottle before release. A refined Spaniard of the most opulent and intense character, a complex and well fleshed wine, distinguished by its elegance, seamlessness and remarkable structure.

Parcels of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) are picked off vines twenty five to thirty years of age. Fruit is sourced from vineyards adjacent the Bodega Alion wineworks and from mother company Vega Sicilia's own estate properties at Valbuena. Hand picked grapes are placed into wooden crates and poured over a sorting table. Alion is crafted in the modern Bordeaux cru classe style, employing modern facilities and lots of new oak. Grapes are treated to a traditional vinification and malolactic in open vats. During the January following vintage, Alion is transfered to a selection of new French Bordeaux coopered oak barrels for a year's maturation, bottling and a further year of age under the estate cellars.
 
Ruby red, violet hues. Clean, fruit and floral bouquet, a wine in pure condition. Powerful entrance, full palate, exhibiting outstanding balance between acid and fruit, tannins and oak, the presence of Tempranillo varietal character remains prominent. The essential elegance of the Alion style dominates the long, persistent finish.

Bodega Alion caused quite a stir when it was inaugurally released. Aficionados of the mother winery Vega Sicilia's established style rejected the more modern, newly oaked, wider Ribera Del Duero delineation of Alion. It has since become a regional classic. Vines are planted to chalk dominated, minerals rich topsoils over water retaining schist bedrocks, the same structures found under the finest Port vineyards further down the Duero. Fruit is treated to a traditional vinification and malolactic in steel vats. The following January, Alion is transfered to a selection of new French Nevers oak barrels for a year's maturation and a further twelve months ageing in bottle under the estate cellars.
 
Bright deep red colour with streaks of violet. Full and elegant nose, a wide range of aromas, vanilla, ripe fruits, syrup and compotes. Good intensity of spicy, gamey fruit, showing chocolate, red and black berries plus a note of soy sauce. The palate is opulent and elegant with harmonious tannins providing a subtle backbone. Great aromatic persistence in the mouth, the tannins will support at least ten years ageing.
