A great Ribera del Duero wine with delightful freshness and aromatic expression
Since its acquisition by the Álvares family in 1982, Vega Sicilia has continued to grow and establish its international reputation. Today, a continual pursuit of excellence, harmony with nature, hard work and unfailing commitment make this Spanish estate a prestigious name. Over the years, other wineries like Pintia have come to embrace and enhance the Vega Sicilia philosophy. Thus, the extreme care taken in the vineyards as well as in the vinification process is the sign of great Spanish wines from unique lands.
Alión from Vega Sicilia is a Ribera del Duero wine made from a meticulous selection of exceptional vineyards spread over an area of 130 hectares, 70 of which are on the estate. The soils of this terroir benefit from river, colluvial and wind influences. The vines, which are 39 years old on average, are planted on clay-limestone soils with a good water regulation that advances early ripening of the grapes.
