Characteristics of Alión

Alión Reserva is a one of the most important and demanded wines in D.O. Ribera del Duero. This wine has been made by Bodegas Alión, a winery owned by one of the most representative groups in the area, Vega Sicilia.
It is a single variety Tinto Fino grown from vines that are between 25 to 35 years old. As for the production, it undergoes an aging in new French oak barrels for 14 months and, finally, it stays in the bottle for 18-20 more months before it is released onto the market. Thanks to this process, they obtain a solid wine with maximum expression.

We recommend that you decant it before enjoying as it is in the bottle for a few months and it is good to oxygenate and remove any dregs that have been created.

Alcohol: 14.5%
Serve at 18ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing
Roasted red meats, Game stew, Stews, Beans and pulses, Small game, Semi-mature Cheese, Game animals

Tasting notes Alión

Sight Concentrated colour that is dark but a bright and seductive rim, from its few years of youth but seasoned wood. Nose The aroma reveals a rare intensity of the wines from Denomination Ribera del Duero. There are roasted nuances of grape and toasted luxury wood aromas. Taste On the palate, sweet tannins of concentrated black fruit combined with sweet and creamy tannins from French oak. It is flavourful, powerful, and fleshy with a display of truly evocative nuances.
Sight Dark cherry colour with violet reflections. Clean and bright wine with a high robe. Slightly coloured tears. Nose Clean and very intense nasal aromas which show a good balance between the intense notes of ripe red and black fruit and the nice toasted notes. Abundant spicy nuances (vanilla, nutmeg, pepper) are noticed along with some good notes of tobacco, soft hints of cocoa, a subtle mineral touch and light balsamic nuances which complete a serious, complex and elegant nose. 
Taste It shows a good mid palate with a great load of fruit notes, well balanced with the subtle notes of wood and some spicy hints. Its mid palate is tasty, fleshy and expressive. It has sweet and refined tannins, still quite drying. Good acidity which provides a deep and crispy wine. Long and very persistent finish. One of the greatest Spanish wines.
Sight Dark cherry colour with violet reflections. Clean and bright wine with a high robe. Dense and very slow-falling tears. Nose Clean and very intense nasal aromas which show a good balance between the intense notes of ripe red and black fruit and the nice toasted notes, which progressively turn into roasted aromas. Abundant spicy nuances (vanilla, nutmeg, pepper) are noticed along with some good notes of tobacco and leather and a subtle mineral hint. Taste Powerful and embracing attack. It shows a good load of fruit notes, well integrated notes of wood and some spicy hints. Its mid palate is tasty, fleshy and expressive. Sweet, polished and unctuous tannins and a good acidity. Great structure. Long and persistent finish.
Sight Ruby red colour with maroon rim. High robe, clean and bright with slow-falling tears staining the glass. Nose Good intensity. Initially aromas of its ageing appear that gradually give way to spicy, balsamic and mineral notes. Red and black ripe fruit slowly emerges in the background. Well-balanced, ripe and expressive. Taste Honest and voluminous on the palate. Medium-bodied with good acidity and very intense, ripe tannins. Not too long a finish but very persistent. Sweet roasted and smoky notes at retro-olfaction.
Sight Dark cherry red with violet trims. High and shiny robe. Dense and very slow tears. Nose Intense aromas of ripe black fruit which emerge together with notes of roasted and different spices (vanilla, nutmeg, pepper), a note of snuff and a subtle mineral touch. Taste Powerful attack that fills the mouth. Lots of fruit, with well integrated wood and spicy flavours. Very tasty, meaty and expressive mid palate. Polished and creamy tannins. Long, persistent finish. All this features turn it into a round wine.
Sight The color is concentrated, dark, bright and seductive edge, denotes his youth. Nose The aroma is revealed with an intensity rare in the wines of the Ribera del Duero Designation. Are the nuances of roasted grapes and toasted wood luxury. Taste The palate, concentrated tannins of black fruit combined with sweet tannins and creamy French oak.
