Tasting note of Case Alion + Valbuena
Alion is of concentrated color, dark, but with the luminous and seductive edge, typical of its few years of youth but seasoned in the wood. The aroma is revealed with a rare intensity in the wines of the denomination Ribera del Duero. The torrefactados nuances of the grape and the toast of luxury wood appear. To the palate, the sweetened tannins of the concentrated black fruit are combined with the sweet and creamy tannins of the French oak. It is tasty, powerful, meaty, with a truly suggestive display of nuances
Vega Sicilia Valbuena 5 º is of a very special intensity in nose, of great character and individuality. Loaded with a taste of black currant. Smooth glycerin texture. It ends with a magnificent attack and freshness that gives it a balanced composition.
