Bodegas Alion was launched with the 1991 vintage by the famous Vega Sicilia estate. The wine is made by Xavier Ausas, winemaker at Vega Sicilia, from a single grape variety, Tempranillo.
The style and philosophy is entirely different to the long ageing at Vega Sicilia, with the release of a young, three year-old wine that has been matured almost entirely in new French oak casks for 12 months. This is an uncompromisingly modern winery. Alion is ready to be drunk after release but with at least 10 years ageing potential. The wine lives up to the environment in which it is created; sexy, flamboyant, peppery and finely textured.
