Tasting Notes

Picaro means 'rogue' or 'rascal', and this rapscallion of a wine is a youthful interpretation of the Toro region's style. The grapes come from mature vines of over 50 years of age, but the wine spends only three months in oak, preserving their natural fruit profile. Vivid crimson-purple in the glass. Aromas are of ripe blackberries and raspberries, with subtle hints of fresh cocoa. The palate is bold yet supple, with ripe tannins and a mineral grip.

Braised short ribs? Grilled ribeye steak? Roasted pork loin or a juicy melt-in-your-mouth burger? Whatever you'll be cooking up, go big on flavour and if it wasn’t already a special occasion, with this red at your side, it will be!

The Producer

Matsu

Matsu represents a journey through time, through several generations dedicated to life on the land: youth, maturity and old age. Bodega Matsu's four wines originating in the D.O. Toro are made with grapes from centenary vineyards, and the wisdom inherited from generations of winemakers who continue to grow the vines in an artisan way using the most ancestral techniques.

El Pícaro, El Recio, El Viejo and La Jefa personify the essence of Matsu, their individual relationship with the land in accordance with their age and their life stage. They are the tribute to hundreds of men and women who have dedicated their lives to the vineyard in this region. The result is four modern and sophisticated wines, capable of displaying soft, discreet elegance without losing the power that characterizes Toro wines.
