Alión 2018 75 cl.Bodegas y Viñedos Alión
Bodegas y Viñedos Alión, Tempos Vega Sicilia group, elaborates this aged red wine in the D.O. Ribera del Duero (España) with tempranillo grapes.
Alion is formed by a careful selection of terroirs spread over the best zones of the Deno of Origin Ribera del Duero. These soils that complement each other, together with the same viticulture that is done in Vega Sicilia, have led to wines from a firm structure.
of great personality, all the lots of Alion are guiding during the aging of about 12 months in French oak barrel and 5% American oak. This vintage used 80% new oak and the oak rest used to obtain, the wine with more universal taste of the family.
About the vintage:
2018 was a vintage that reflects an Atlantic-influenced climate, with more rainfall than usual, cool temperatures and a relatively late harvest, between September 28 and October 12.
In this vintage, a new elaboration warehouse with half-capacity tanks was released, which allowed a more precise extraction. It was a vintage where the impact of the new wood barriques was increased up to 80%, especially that of American origin, which reached 10%, seeking to give the wine more sweetness.
