2012 has to be one of the best recent vintages of Alión. This 2012 Alión is pure Tempranillo from vineyards averaging 25 to 30 years of age, harvested at the end of September and matured for 14 months in new French oak barrels. The nose is much more elegant than the Pintia from Toro (I tasted them together), still very fresh and primary but with a special brightness of fruit, shiny cherries, raspberries, something effervescent, open and somehow exuberant. The palate is quite round, much more polished, with some notes of dark chocolate, some subtle volatility, elegant, fresh and long. It has the balance and stuffing to develop nicely in bottle. Superb balance, Ribera character, clean, modern classic. 280,000 bottles were produced.

Description

1994 was the fist vintage of this wine.
The bodega was bought in 1992. Meanwhile, the family has constantly been investing in the cellar and viticultural equipment.
In 2000, stainless steel fermentation tanks were replaced by large oak vats and the oak barrel cellar was equipped with air conditioning; more recently, a new bottling line was also installed.

Vinification

13 months in new oak barrels from Nevers.

Tasting analysis

Alión's philosophy is different from Vega Sicilia’s. Alión makes modern wines, 100% Tempranillo Fino.
After fermentation, the wine is aged for 13 to 14 months is French new oak barrels. Then it stays for 2 years in to bottle.
Its style is close to modern Bordeaux Grands Crus.
Both concentrated and refined, fleshy and elegant.
This great wine is a tribute to the graciousness of Tempranillo.

Storage potential

12 years.

Serving

18°C. Decanting is recommended during the 6 first years after bottling.
