Bodegas Y Viñedos Alión Ribera del Duero 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Alion is certainly a modern wine, an opulent and seductive 100% Tempranillo aged for 14 months in new French oak barrels, but - as one would expect from Vega Sicilia - there is nothing over-the-top about the wine. Not overripe, overextracted or overoaked, it is all about elegance, harmony, class...and sheer hedonistic pleasure.

Undurchlässige Purpur-Farbe. Pflaumenmarmelade und reife Brombeeren in der desserthaften Nase, auch Nussschokolade, Amarenakirschen und Lakritze, tiefgründig und intensiv zugleich. Schmeichelhafte Gaumenfülle und unverkennbarer Alion-Schmelz, geleeartiges Extrakt und perfekt eingebundene Tannine. Geschmack nach Karamell, schwarzen Kirschen und gelierte Waldbeeren in allen Facetten. Viel Wärme und kontinuierlicher Fruchtdruck bis zum letzten Schluck.
