Pago Florentino is one of only 13 Denominaciones de Origen de Pago existing in Spain as of 2009. This is the highest category on the quality scale of Spanish wines and means that in Read More...
addition to having a proven track record of consistent quality, the wines have to be both produced from single estate-grown vineyards and also have to be processed and aged in the winery (bodega) located on the estate. This DO de Pago is located in the municipality of Malagón, in the province of Ciudad Real (Castile-La Mancha, Spain) and acquired its status on 20 August 2009.

The 2010 is 100% Tempranillo and ready for summer grillin’! One of the things we love about Tempranillo is its versatility-- from soft and delicate to boisterous and big, and all points in between, Tempranillo can fill just about any role you throw at it. For this one, we’re thinking summer barbecues with lots of friends and family around. The nose is salivatingly good (Pavlovian, to say the least); the salty, earthy smell of Jamón Ibérico leads, while a smattering of fresh berries (elderberries, blueberries, raspberries) follows closely behind, bolstered by deft streaks of autumn spices, nutmeg, pepper and a hint of mint. The palate starts with sweet fruit while ample tannins immediately make their presence felt. A mélange of flavors lovingly assaults the palate: sassafras, sassafras tea, earthy spice, salted plum, cherry, licorice, smoke. And, like a good chorale of trained voices, each seems to know how to blend with each; the flavors and scents merge harmoniously to make a beautiful, easy-to-drink, balanced wine.

ANTONIO GALLONI 91 POINTS - " Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Dark purple. Expressive dark berry preserve, vanilla and floral pastille aromas Read More...
are lifted by a subtle peppery nuance. Lush and open-knit, offering intense blueberry and cherry-vanilla flavors that tighten up with air. Finishes on a juicy note, with excellent length, silky tannins and an echo of blue fruits."

WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS -" The most expensive wine in this portfolio is the 2012 Single Vineyard, a 100% Tempranillo from a vineyard in La Mancha planted in 1957. There are 2,000 cases of this cuvée, which sees 18 months of aging in new French oak, and is bottled unfiltered. An outstanding, value-priced wine, its deep ruby/purple color is followed by notes of unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice, Christmas fruitcake, blackberries and cassis. Intense and medium-bodied with sweet tannin and a voluptuous, long finish, it should drink well for 1-3 years. It is another Spanish red that over-delivers in fruit, flavor and complexity."
