WINE TASTING

One of the classics of Ribera del Duero, Alion is the sister estate of the world famous Vega Sicilia. Here the wines are made in a more modern style than Vega Sicilia, typically displaying rich, generous fruit and lashings of spice thanks to 12 months spent in 80% new, mainly, French oak barrels. It has a particular richness about it that follows on from the spicy and slightly smoky aromas. The palate is full of ripe fruit and spiciness which is held together with mellow tannins, a firm minerality and well judged acidity.

FOOD PAIRING

Vega Sicilia Alion is best served with roast suckling pig or milk-fed lamb from Castilla.

    The Source

    Vega Sicilia

    Vega Sicilia, Spain’s “first growth” and most prestigious wine estate, is located in Ribera del DueroIt was founded in 1864 by Don Eloy Lecanda y Chaves and has changed hands several times before its acquisition by the current owners, the Álvarez family, in 1982. The estate’s success is founded on its meticulous approach. In the vineyard it applies low yields, aided by green harvesting and painstaking selection at harvest. In the winery, wines are aged in any number of receptacles – using French and American, new and old oak, small barrels or huge vats – to engender further complexity. Despite prolonged barrel ageing, the fruit is never dried out or overly oaky – compelling evidence of the superb quality of its raw materials. Vega Sicilia has now built up a portfolio which includes Bodegas Alion (providing a more modern expression of Ribera del Duero),  Bodegas Pintia (in the emerging region Toro), Macán (a partnership with Benjamin de Rothschild) and the Hungarian Tokaji estate, Oremus.
