Description

DESCRIPTION

Alión is formed by a careful selection of plots spread across the best of Ribera del Duero. These plots, which complement each other, joined by the same viticulture as Vega Sicilia, have given rise to firm structured wines.

Lots in Alión are guided through 12 months ageing in 80% new barrels. French oak is predominant in 95% barrels and 5% American oak, to obtain maximum complexity from the diversity of soil.

Alión 2016 experimented a 10% use of concrete bringing out a more elegant and profound wine.

This vintage will be remembered in the history of Alión. It has a genuine, modern character highlighting its harmony and thoroughness.
