Matsu El Recio is een biodynamische wijn en heeft 14 maanden gerijpt op Frans eiken. Het is een ronde, volle, complexe wijn. We proeven bosbessen, bramen, mineralen, een vleugje kruiden, cacao, vanille, aangename tannines en een afdronk met kielzog.

Bij het eten.

Goede combinatie met wild, rood vlees, canard a l orange en pasta’s.

The Wine Advocate:
“The 2014 El Recio is quite similar to the other two wines tasted next to it, as they all have a soft, commercial profile with judicious oak and increasing levels of refinement and depth. This is an approachable Tinta de Toro matured in barrel for 14 months.”

Luis Gutierrez, Feb 2017

Matsu belongs to the Vintae group from Rioja (Hacienda Lopez de Haro). In Toro they have a strong image with labels wearing full-size pictures of men from three different generations for wines called Picaro (the young guy), the experienced man and the grandfather. They landed in the appellation in 2006 and own no vineyards, but control 200 hectares, some of them extremely old, one of the attractive characteristics that brought them to Toro in the first place. The wines are well-crafted, fermented in cement vats in a large winery and aged in a mixture of old and new oak barrels in a commercial style, following the same path as their wines from Rioja.
