Wine Style: Red Still Wine

Winemaker's Notes:

Grape Varietal: 100% Tempranillo

Grapes for Vinedos Alion are sourced from vineyards next to the winery and from Vega Sicilia's own vineyards at Valbuena. Eighteen hectares of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) form the actual Alion estate. Inky purple-colored with an alluring perfume of toasty oak, lavender, violets, mineral, blackberry, and blueberry compote. This is followed by a full-bodied, rich, opulent, wine with incipient complexity, and notes of licorice, mocha, and espresso emerging on the palate. The lengthy finish is pure and persistent. Give it at least 3-5 years in the cellar and it can drink for 20+ years .
