Food Pairings for Future-Arrival Sale Alion Ribera del Duero
In the second half of the 1980s, the Alvarez family had the idea to create a new winery in the Ribera del Duero, one which would present a more modern expression of the region using 100% Tinto Fino and 100% French oak. With this idea in mind, Bodegas y Vinedos Alion was created in 1991. Since that first vintage, which was named to the Wine Spectator's Top 100, Alion has been a commercial and critical success. It is also a perfect foil for its parent winery. Where the wines of Vega Sicilia display classical elegance and reserve, Alion is a sleeker, racier breed. It No fruit from vines under ten years of age is used in any of the wines in the Vega Sicilia family.
