Description of Alión 1997
Alión 1997 (Tempranillo)
A bright deep red colour 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.
How to serve
Bodegas Alion, with this new challenge, the Alvarez family wanted to demonstrate that the legendary winery could make modern wines according to tendencies in the 21st century. Elegant and modern as Ribera del Duero can be.More about the Winery

The red and violet edges were visible for me. Slight smell of tea in this Ribera del Duero. A surprising fruity wine.
