Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red color. On the nose, it has an intense and multi-layered aroma, with notes of chocolate, ripe black fruits, and vanilla. The palate is round and silky, very unctuous with subtle hints of glycerin. Complex and interesting with the long mineral aftertaste.

COMMENTARY: The 2020 Matsu El Recio is substantial and layered. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of ripe black fruits, hints of spice, and an accent of oak. Enjoy it with a grilled ribeye. (Tasted: June 4, 2022, San Francisco, CA)
JS 91
James Suckling

Spiced plums, dark cherries and blueberries on the nose, together with hints of sweet spice and vanilla, following through to a medium-bodied palate with a firm but silky wrap of tannins. An elegant and fresh-toned Toro. Vegan. Drink now.

Matsu, Spain
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 Spanish 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.
