As Vega Sicilia itself describes it, Alion 2014 this is "a wine born to make history" and a "wine of pioneering, independent and contemporary character fruit of the evolution of a famous family of great wines ".

The point is that the "little brother" of Vega Sicilia is no longer a wine that grows in the shadow of his legendary brother, but that he himself has fledged o become a contemporary classic, a renowned wine, distinguished and praised thanks to the authenticity of its temperament.

For its part, the 2014 vintage embodies the bounties offered to Ribera del Duero, giving us a silky, voluptuous, jammy wine, without falling into excesses. It will benefit from a longer time in the bottle and will evolve well.

This vintage has produced 284,284 bottles and 6,500 Magnums, wine gems that will allow us to enjoy, more than ever, a wine of "universal spirit with a vocation for the future".

4 /5

Detta Alión Reserva gick bra med efterrätt. Jag tog 2 flaskor av Alión Reserva 2014 med ett gammalt par.
Brunaktigt röd. Jag märkte att det smakade som kaffe och trä. Ett ordentligt vin med röd fruktsmak.

Atraiu-me a sua cor intensa. Aromas de carvalho.Notei algum sabor de fumado.
O Tempranillo vai bem com carne de caça.
O vinho dos meus amigos de Vega Sicilia.

Den ble anbefalt av en venn.
Kirsebær. Øverste laget. Lukten var litt tung. Til tross for alt dette Alión Reserva syns jeg den var veldig frisk.

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.
