Review

El Pícaro is a young signature wine, with refinement in barrel for three months, which comes as a direct result of biodynamic viticulture methods and an absolute respect for nature. El Pícaro embodies the younger generation, incorporating the distinctive traits of the character it represents: young, strong, brave, with a lot of nerve and a wild side.

Dark purplish red in colour, the wine displays aromas of black fruit (blackberries and blueberries) as well as other red berry notes, on a mineral background. On the palate it is fresh, complex and generous.

Refined for three months in oak barrels.

Dark and rich

The first time we tried this wine we found it quite sharp and almost too strong. We decided to give it another go and this time it was perfect. I think we warmed it up too much the first time. It was a little peppery with a strong but pleasant after taste. Goes well with red meat dishes.

Reliable, rounded red - the "next two up" from this producer are also excellent

The series of three wines with the same label "theme" are all good wines, but this one is perhaps the best value of the three, and is a reliable, rounded, very drinkable wine at a good price point.

Matsu

Matsu is more than just an ordinary winery or wine, it is a contemporary project of sustainable viticulture that brings together an exclusive collection of high expression wines. Matsu means 'to wait' in Japanese and provides the perfect definition of an initiative that combines the Oriental culture's concern for what is natural with the most advanced techniques in biodynamic agriculture employed in European farming. All their wines are organic; the vines are grown in a com...
