2012 Alión, Vega-Sicilia, Ribera del Duero
This is such a pure expression of Tempranillo, with richness and ripeness but still a little restraint on the nose. The palate is concentrated and brambly, but there is masterful balance at work: such is the freshness that has been locked-in, it seems almost cool in the mouth. Flavours of plum, sweet oak and store-cupboard spice unfurl with a beautifully weighted texture. This is riveting Ribera at its very best.
