Sterke geuren van bessen. Een zeer lichte rode wijn.
Het is de moeite waard weer dit Vega Sicilia Alion te kopen.

Adoro partilhar este vinho com amigos.
Tinha uma cor intensa. Aromas a couro e tabaco de cachimbo. Pareceu-me doce na boca.
Bom complemento para uma carne especial.

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.

Bodegas Alión Ribera del Duero 2016

4/5

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.
