Ripe, dark and full of plum and blackberry fruit. There's a bit of a herbaceous note like thyme and slightly smoky finish. Medium-bodied and very easy to drink.
Try this with sausages.
Metic wines are made by a French/English/Spanish expat, who consults for many wineries in Chile and has his own business sourcing grapes from sustainable and in many cases organic vineyards. They make the wines with less manipulation than one would expect at this level. Metic was the term used in Ancient Greece for a foreigner living in Athens that contributed to the cultural and economic life but did not have the same rights as a true citizen. This wine was inspired by the famous song ‘Le Métèque’ by Georges Moustaki and led Luca to call this wine Metic.
Grapes are hand picked from 30 year old vines. Fermented with wild yeasts
