Metus, the protector, the enchantress, able to petrify those who met her bewitching and fearsome gaze. His face as a "magical creature" was used as an antefix to drive away evil spells and protect sacred places. The Etruscans of Populonia, in defense of all their people, dedicated their effigy and protection to the minting of coins.
Poggio Rosso has chosen this name for a wine which, protected for years, is destined to enchant with its complexity of aromas and tertiary notes; a wine that will drag you into a meditative tasting experience.
Produced in exclusive 236 bottles of 0.375lt., it is the result of a long and patient journey on the evolution of late harvests in barriques.
Its label is the handcrafted reproduction by fusion, in silver and tin, of the ancient coinage of Etruscan Populonia, bearing the effigy of Metus.
