"Alion" is an estate that is the pride of the Alvarez family, owner of the famed Vega Sicilia. Founded in 1992, the idea was to highlight the greatness of the local grape variety of this wine: Tempranillo. Yields are low in order to obtain optimum concentration. Fermentation takes place in tanks and then the wine is matured in French and American wooden barrels. Ground-breaking and independent, it is the result of the evolution of a famous family of great wines. Recognised, distinguished and praised for the authenticity of its character, Alión today symbolizes a universal and forward-looking spirit

Winemaker Notes

Alvarez family

Vega Sicilia

by Alvarez family
The 2017 vintage is a classical Alión, with some developed aromas, juicy and round but not heavy, with just a tad of earthy rusticity. With time, it develops more balsamic notes and hints of licorice. To quote Robert Parker, this is “one of the coolest and most elegant vintages of Alion, a year with depth, freshness and great balance"
