|Type||Vino de Pago|
Pago Florentino is a Vino de Pago from Spain. This means that in addition to having a proven track record of consistent quality, the wines have to be both produced from estate-grown grapes and also have to be processed and aged in a winery (bodega) located on the estate.
The 58 hectare estate, known as La Solana, belongs to the Arzuaga group and contains the following red grape varieties: Tempranillo, Syrah and Petit Verdot. It was purchased in 1997 but the first wine was not made until 2002.
The planting density is between 1,300 and 3,000 vines/hectare, and the maximum authorised yield is 10,000 kg/ha for the three varieties.
The minimum alcohol content is 12.5º, and the wines must contain a minimum of 90% Tempranillo.
