In the beginning the Alión 2015 was considered a "second class" wine and was the ace in the hole of the Vega Sicilia wineries; however, as time went on and it began to obtain recognition among its consumers, it managed to position itself as an authentic wine with its own stamp: a renowned red wine in the Ribera del Duero.

The Alión 2015 comes from vineyards that are between 25 and 30 years old and that exalt the richness of the Tinto FIno variety. The harvest is manual and a careful selection of the fruit is made to guarantee the best possible quality. The end result is an elegant, intense, and balanced red that will perfectly accompany your barbecue and cooked meats.
