Description

Tempos Vega Sicilia Alión 2017

Tempos Vega Sicilia Alión has a shiny ruby red. It is intense and complex, bursting with notes of red and black berries and plums. It gradually develops some hints of tomato leaf, nutmeg, clove, allspice and cigar box. Luscious and intense with high acidity and velvety tannins with a cherry aftertaste lasting for minutes

Alión comes from a careful selection of terroirs dotted across the very best areas of the Ribera del Duero DO. These soils, which complement each other, along with the same winemaking process as Vega Sicilia, have given rise to wines with a firm structure. 2017 was the ‘vintage of the frost’ (April 28), but this affected the wines less than it could have, thanks to the policy of producing 25 % more than they need, and to the double pruning carried out in the winter. 2017 was a challenging vintage, but with a glorious end result, sustaining the genuine, modern and multicultural character of Alión of somewhat warmer and firmer expression.

Wine produced using the Tinto Fino variety. The grapes are harvest by hand in 12-kg boxes and are taken immediately to the winery to the sorting tables. Fermentation takes place in wooden tanks under controlled temperatures until a good polyphenolic structure is obtained which will provide the generous colour and firm structure that makes up part of the personality of this wine; and finally the ageing of between 12 and 14 months. In this drier and warmer vintage, the contribution of oak was reduced, using 72 % new barrel, 18 % used barrel and 10 % concrete, with a view to working on the tannin texture, on the one hand, and the freshness and journey of the wine, on the other.

Once the wine is removed from the barrels, it will remain no less than 15 months in the stillness of the bottle, where it will end up assembling all the primary aromas of the fruit with the hues from its delicate ageing, resulting in an intense, complex and fleshy wine, but where the elegance is a distinguishing feature and hallmark of the winery.
