PAGO FLORENTINO 2009 TEMPRANILLO

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 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 ‘09 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.
