Of outstanding personality, lots in Alion are guided through 12 months ageing in French oak barrels and 5% American oak, to obtain maximum complexity from the diversity of soil. This vintage was aged in 80% new oak barrels and the remaining in used barriques attaining, without a doubt, the most universal wine of the house; later resting in bottle until reaching a perfect stage for consumption.

Alión is a fleshy, complex, intense wine, where elegance plays a differentiating role and is the winery´s hallmark.

James Suckling

Very impressive red plums and the Alion has a very approachable feel to it, supple and even. The nose delivers some savory, slightly tarry and earthy character with a classic, direct and easy-to-understand feel. Some dried flowers, too. The palate has medium body and delivers fleshy, round red cherries, gently savory, spicy elements and fine, long and detailed tannins. A great Alion, full of flavor, very fresh. Drink across the next 15 years.
