Why do we love it?

El Picaro by Bodegas Matsu is a different Tempranillo, called Tinta de Toro in the Toro region. Why different? Because Toro is a region that came out unharmed from the phylloxera disaster because of its soil and climate, and you know what that means? Old vines that make super-concentrated, epic wines!

"Matsu" is a Japanese expression that means "hope and expectation" and summarizes the way they cultivate their vines with sustainable viticulture. This means that they only intervene in the vine when it is absolutely necessary and thus protect the soil and the environment from the use of chemicals and pesticides. El Picaro is made up of Tempranillo that comes from 90-year-old vines. The precious juice is fermented in cement tanks and then it undergoes malolactic fermentation and maturation in French oak barrels. The result is utterly impressive and expressive.

Enjoy it with juicy red meats and good company!
