Alión 2016

4 /5

A bright deep red color with streaks of violet. Full and elegant on the nose, with a wide range of aromas, such as vanilla, ripe fruits, compote and syrups. The palate is opulent and elegant with harmonious tannins providing a subtle backbone to the wine; great aromatic persistence in the mouth. Designed to drink well on release, the tannins will nevertheless support at least 10 years further ageing.

En bra röd att avsluta måltiden med. Med ett engagemang.
Ser ut att vara ett ungt rött vin. Denna Vega Sicilia luktade kaffe. Den har en varm smak.

We didn't pair it well, but the wine was good. At a friend's wedding.
The red and violet edges were visible for me. Slight smell of tea in this Ribera del Duero. A surprising fruity wine.

Deep colour at first sight. It has aromas that reminded me of white roses.Very light flavour.
A wine to be paired with "Tapas".
I drank it with my ex.
