Vega Sicilia Alion Ribera del Duero 2014
“2014 is a better vintage in Ribera del Duero than in Rioja, and the 2014 Alión shows it. Sourced from 130 hectares of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) in Ribera del Duero and possibly the most modern of the Vega Sicilia Group wines, it's silky, voluptuous, jammy, ripe and generous without being too much. The grapes fermented with indigenous yeasts in oak vats, and the wine matured in new and second use French barrels for 12 to 14 months. It's quite ripe and powerful, yet balanced and with great freshness. The palate is medium to full-bodied with lots of fruit, juicy and showy, modern without excess.”
