Winemaker Notes

This wine has a great robe and a profound color, an expression of its young age. It has an intense aroma in which one can find dark fruits such as blackberries and blueberries, mineral notes also appear, creating this fresh wine with complexity. In the mouth, again this wine dominates the fruitful sensations, perceived as a wine with body; though at the same time its leaves pleasant lickerish sensations, contributed by the maturity of the grapes from which this wine is made.

COMMENTARY: The 2020 Matsu El Picaro is bright, lively, and delicious for current enjoyment. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of attractive red and black fruits. Enjoy it with fried carnitas over fried corn tortillas. (Tasted: August 10, 2021, San Francisco, CA

Matsu Winery Video

Matsu (Toro, Zamora) is one of the first adventures of the Vintae Wine Company away from La Rioja. A region to which Vintae became committed after ascertaining the immense quality of its vineyards and the type of artisan viticulture that had always been conducted there, working the vineyard by hand and always allowing nature to complete its own cycles. 

Hence, Matsu represents a journey through time, through three generations dedicated to life on the land. Youth, maturity and old age. Four wines originating in the D.O. Toro that have needed more tan one hundred years to be able to be elaborated with the grape from centenary vineyards (many prephylloxera), the wisdom inherited from generations of winemakers who continue to grow the vines naturally and the most ancestral techniques based on the principles of biodynamic agriculture.

Spain's remote, high elevation wine zone between the regions of Bierzo and Ribera del Duero produces intense, full-bodied reds made from Tempranillo, locally called Tinta de Toro. This local variant has adapted to the region’s climatic extremes and recognizing its potential, top producers from Ribera del Duero and Rioja have invested heavily in its vineyards.

Notoriously food-friendly, long-lasting and Spain’s most widely planted grape, Tempranillo is the star variety of red wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. The Rioja terms Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva indicate both barrel and bottle time before release. Traditionally blended in Rioja with Garnacha, plus a bit of Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano, the Tempranillo in Ribera del Duero typically stands alone. Somm Secret—Tempranillo claims many different names depending on location. In Penedès, it is called Ull de Llebre and in Valdepeñas, goes by Cencibel. Known as Tinta Roriz in Portugal, Tempranillo plays an important role in Port wine.
