2008 Bodegas Alion Ribera del Duero image

Produced from estate vineyards located both around the winery and within the historic Vega Sicilia vineyards. Pablo Alvarez, managing director of Vega Sicilia, calls Alion “a wine somewhere between a Ribera del Duero and a Medoc in styleâ€. The wine is 100% Tempranillo, called locally Tinto Fino. Winemaking in the modern Bordeaux cru classé style, using state-of-the-art equipment and lots of top quality new French oak. Fermentation and Malolactic take place in large wooden vats, to create a modern interpretation that differs from its older siblings 10 mins down the road.



“…heavenly bouquet of black plum, crushed violets and tobacco that soar from the glass, while displaying a level of delineation that would serve a lesson to many of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, silky-smooth tannins that belie the structure underneath. The acidity lends the 2008 a little more edginess than the 2007, while the finish has a wonderful sense of symmetry and focus. World class. Drink 2016-2025 â€.WA 95
