2016 Vega Sicilia Alion

VINTAGE: 2016

APPELATION: DO Ribera del Duero 

VARIETALS: Tinto Fino

ABOUT THE WINE:  Alion is Vega Sicilia’s second project in Ribera del Duero.  There are 130 hectares of land divided into three large blocks, seventy of which are located on the Vega Sicilia estate itself: 30 hectares in the Padilla de Duero, and another 30 hectares in the nearby town of Pesquera de Duero.  Alion is the “younger sibling” to Vega Sicilia; made with the same elegance, but aged three years before release and meant to drink within the first 15-20 years, though there is no doubt that it can age longer

TASTING NOTES: The wine is extremely inviting as a result. The fruit is pure, aromatic and complex, reflecting the varying terroir in this triangle of vineyards between Pesquera del Duero, Padilla and Valbuena. There is spice and weight, but also great length and class. This is a true example of contemporary Ribera made without compromise.
