Winemaker's Notes

A bright deep red colour with streaks of violet. Full and elegant on the nose, with a wide range of aromas, such as vanilla, ripe fruits, compote and syrups. The palate is opulent and elegant with harmonious tannins providing a subtle backbone to the wine; great aromatic persistence in the mouth. Designed to drink well on release, the tannins will nevertheless support at least 10 years further ageing.

Pablo Alvarez, managing director of Vega Sicilia, calls Alion "a wine somewhere between a Ribera del Duero and a Medoc in style".

Like Pesquera, the wine is 100% Tempranillo, called locally Tinto Fino, and thus identifiably Spanish in flavour and richness. But modern winemaking by Vega's own highly-talented winemaker, Javier Ausas, combined with the use of top-quality new French oak gives Alion an international interpretation that is difficult to resist.
