Bodegas Matsu El Recio 2020
Grape varietal and region: 100% Tinta de Toro also known as Tempranillo!
The climate in this area is a continental climate with an Atlantic influence. It is dry, with many hours of sun, and very cold in winter. It is an area that experiences extreme temperature changes, reaching 11 degrees below zero in winter and 37 degrees in summer. There is also a considerable temperature contrast between night and day, which favours an optimum maturation of the grape. In addition, the annual rainfall is very low, so the risk of diseases appearing is also very low and therefore grapes grow in a perfectly healthy state.
Selection of 90 to 100 year old vines of extremely limited production, naturally cultivated following the biodynamic techniques. Manual harvest that is undergone the first 15 days of the month of October.
Taste profile: This is a corpulent wine with a lot of finesse, and an intense nose with notes of chocolate, black fruits and vanilla. In the mouth the taste is striking, being predominantly round and silky, very unctuous with subtle hints of the glycerine. Touches of fruits linger in the after taste as do mineral notes. This is a full-body wine yet at the same time very easy to drink.
Winemaking process: Fermentation and maceration for a duration of 3 weeks in reinforced concrete deposits of 15,000 kg. The malolactic fermentation is realized in French oak barrels, and aged for a duration of 14 months. This wine has not been filtered and is clarified without utilizing aggressive processes
