Bodegas Alión was formed in 1986 as a winery which would be run independently to its big brother, the great Vega Sicilia. This 85-hectare wine estate was founded by the Álvarez family (Pablo Alvarez, the owner, pictured right, who also owns the Toro Estate Bodegas Pintia) to provide a modern expression of Ribera del Duero wine. 35 hectares of the estate is located around the winery, with a further 50 hectares dedicated to Alión within the historic Vega Sicilia vineyards. Unlike Vega Sicilia, where we find a merging of the traditional and modern winemaking techniques, Alión is made using state-of-the-art equipment. Forward and uncompromising, these are wines with impressive frames and show an alternative side of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo).

The 2007 Alion is the product of a relatively cool season; relativity is fundamental in this part of the world, of course, and the mild conditions have engendered a wine of great elegance and charm. 14 months of ageing in Nevers oak has ensured that the tannins have grip and authority and the low yielding Tinto Fino, from vines of 30 years of age has lent notes of blackberry, lavender and licorice to the ensemble.
