Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

El Pícaro is a young red wine from Toro made with Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) grapes from vines between 50 and 70 years old.

This wine is produced by Bodega Matsu and is a wine that does not interfere with natural processes, guided by biodynamic viticulture methods.

For its preparation, the harvest is done manually during the first half of October and is transported in boxes and small trailers.

Subsequently, fermentation takes place in concrete tanks of 15,000 kg, the temperature does not exceed 24ºC to maintain freshness in the fruit that characterizes this wine.

Malolactic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels, once complete, it is neither filtered nor clarified, trying to preserve its natural features.

Finally El Pícaro spends three months in wooden barrels.

In Japanese, Matsu means ‘to wait’. A concept that perfectly defines the philosophy of the winery: to wait for the grapes to ripen, to wait for nature to do its work, for the wine to mark the pace.
Using century-old vines, between 80 and 100 years old, planted on very poor soils, cultivated according to the principles of biodynamic agriculture, and with the minimum possible intervention, the Matsu winery produces powerful wines, with personality, but providing a softness and elegance unusual in Toro wines.
In Toro, the red wines are mainly made with the Tinta de Toro grape variety, planted on soils of fluvial origin by the influence of the Duero River and its tributaries, grown on poor, sandy and dry soils the further away you move from the river. Toro offers powerful wines, well bodied, flavourful, complex, and tannic. Although on a smaller scale, the region also produces white wines using the Verdejo and Malvasía varieties. Since the ´80’s, Toro has experienced a revival in its wines, thanks to a new generation of highly skilled winemakers and the installation of many big names in the region, such as Pintia, a winery belonging to the Vega Sicília group, or Teso la Monja, part of Sierra Cantabria.
