2016 Alion, Tempos - Vega Sicilia - Ribera del Duero - 2 Bottles (0.75L)
Red wine - Spain - 95/100 points, Robert Parker

the long-awaited Alión 2016 spent 12 months in oak barrels, 80% of which were new and built mainly from French oak but with 5% American oak, and 10% of the volume matured in 15,000 litre concrete tanks. . It reaches the scale with 15% alcohol and has moderate acidity, showing ripe black fruit and a creamy texture. 2016 has to be one of the freshest and most elegant vintages of Alion, a year with depth, freshness and excellent balance. As in Pintia, they are finding ways to reduce the impact of oak on the wine; here, they used concrete, and the wine shows more primary and floral aromas and is very well textured and with fine tannins. 258,458 bottles, 7,017 magnums and some larger formats produced. It was bottled in June 2018.
