Matsu, which in Japanese means waiting, is a tribute to all the winegrowers who, for generations, have worked the vineyard dedicating their effort, wisdom, respect and sacrifice. The D. O. Toro has a dry climate, extreme temperatures and centuries-old vines that are cared for by traditional methods following the Times marked by nature. The wines retain the power of the denomination by combining it with an enveloping softness. The three generations of the Royal winegrowers who illustrate each bottle represent their relationship with the land, proper to their age and their vital stage.
