Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Alión is one of the most important and sought-after wines from the Ribera del Duero. It is a single-variety Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) made by the Alión winery, which is part of the outstanding Tempos Vega Sicilia winemaking group.

The Alión grapes grow just 15 kilometres from the Vega Sicilia vineyards, they come from plots with an average age of 30 years old and are harvested manually and collected in 12 kg boxes, then taken immediately to the winery to pass over the selection table. The must ferments in wooden tanks at a controlled temperature until the right amount of extraction has taken place to provide the characteristic colour and structure. The wine is aged in new French oak Bordeaux barrels for between 14 and 20 months, depending on the vintage.

These barrels are made by prestigious French coopers and are not used again by the winery after the wine has been bottled, where it rests for at least 15 months to round off.

The name Alión refers to the part of Leon where the father of the álvarez family was born. The family acquired Vega Sicilia in 1982, and vinified the first Alión crops. In 1993, the crop was given its own winery and was no longer known as the little brother of the renowned Vega Sicilia wines, becoming a modern wine that is very different the classic style of Ribera del Duero wines. This gave it its own reputation and today it is one of the best known and most sought-after wines across the world.

Alión is a coupage of lands of Ribera del Duero, since it has its origin in a careful selection of lands distributed throughout different areas of the denomination of origin. The objective is to obtain a wine representative of the best of Ribera del Duero, maintaining the vineyard management criteria that emerge from Vega Sicilia, where soils of different characteristics that complement each other give rise to a qualitative diversity in the same grape variety, the Tinto Fino.
