El Recio by Matsu


“El Recio translates as ‘tough guy’ and it’s a clue to the style of this Tempranillo from Spain’s Toro region. Made from old vines, cultivated biodynamically, the wine matures in new French oak for 14 months, giving it polish and opulence. Firm, sweet black fruit, almost fruit cake in character, with earthy and coffee notes. The guy in the picture must be a meat-eater – this wine is crying out for a juicy steak


Tasting Notes from Pinto Wines

Colour Intense Dark Ruby colour, typical from Toro wines. Edges becoming lighter as result of age
Nose Notes of chocolate, coffee, black fruits and vanilla
Palate Round and silky, very unctuous with subtle hints of the glycerine. Touches of fruits linger in the after taste as do mineral notes
