This is the new vintage of Matsu El Pícaro, a young Spanish red wine that has gained considerable market recognition over the last years.

This wine is crafted solely from organically farmed Tinta de Toro grapes.

All of them come from almost centenary, low-yielding vineyards planted in soils with very low levels of organic matter. 

Produced by the Matsu winery, the grapes were harvested by hand, destemmed and fermented in concrete vats.

Then this red wine from Toro was transferred into French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 3 months.

This young red wine was neither filtered nor clarified prior to its bottling.

Drink Matsu El Pícaro 2017 from Toro until 2022.

Additional Information


The red wine Matsu El Pícaro has an intense, high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.


This Tinta de Toro is full of life. Fresh notions of blueberries, blackberries and strawberries, nuanced by some spicy notions, and some mineral and balsamic remembrances.


This red wine by the Matsu winery is juicy and moreish, with loads of red fruit, some creamy and toasted nuances, crunchy tannins and a good acidity. Pleasant finish with some mineral remembrances.

Our personal opinion

Vibrant and cheerful, Matsu El Pícaro 2017 is a nice young red by Grupo Vintae.
