The Japanese word Matsu (to wait) describes the essence of a sustainable viticulture project that combines the care for nature with biodynamic techniques.

El Viejo, or 'The Old One', is a vegan wine made from Tinta de Toro vines that are over 100 years old. Thanks to the barrel aging the wine acquired a very intense nose with mature black fruit aromas, well integrated with the toasted, spiced and smoked notes. Corpulent in the mouth with very mature and round tannins. In the long and persistent aftertaste appears once again mature fruit perfectly assembled with the roasted character of the wood
