A Symphony of Flavors: ALION 2013 Vega Sicilia reveals captivating notes of black and red fruits, accompanied by earthy undertones and a subtle touch of toasted oak. The wine's youthful yet juicy and rounded tannins, along with its fine acidity, offer freshness and elegance, embodying the essence of this estate. ALION is the sister estate of Vega Sicilia in Ribera del Duero, located just six miles away. While both wineries share proximity, ALION's vineyards span several of the DO's finest terroirs. Nevertheless, a single grape variety, Tempranillo, is meticulously nurtured in these diverse soils. The result is a naturally concentrated, fruity, and accessible wine in its youth, serving as an excellent introduction to Vega Sicilia's interpretation of Ribera del Duero.

Ribera del Duero: A Region of Distinction: While Rioja may be Spain's most famous wine region, Ribera del Duero stands proudly beside it. Known for its classic wines primarily crafted from the Tempranillo grape, Ribera del Duero wines are characterized by their robust, dark fruit flavors, hints of tobacco, and notes of vanilla. These sensual wines are dark, melancholic, and exhilarating, famous for blending the traditional Spanish grape Tempranillo with Bordeaux grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This practice results in wines that are robust, dark, and beautiful.

Vega Sicilia: A Legacy of Excellence: Vega Sicilia is a legendary name among Spanish wine producers, established in 1864 in the westernmost part of what is now the Ribera del Duero DO. Its flagship wine, "Único," is Spain's undisputed equivalent of a first growth Bordeaux, while the "Valbuena 5º" is equally coveted and more accessible. The historic estate went through several ownership changes before being acquired by the Álvarez family in 1982. Meticulous vineyard management contributes to a complex, multi-stage aging process that imparts a vitality and integration distinct from other wines in Ribera del Duero.
