What’s the Past Tense of Virgin?

Like a stripper on opening night, the 2004 Feudo di Santa Tresa Nero d’Avola Avulisi, Sicilia IGT) makes a definite first impression. Chewy tannins and fine acid, it’s fruit forward – bursting with violet, black currant, cranberry and rich leather. This wine is bawdy with body – a voluptuously, soft texture – like slathering your tongue in the hole of a wild blackberry, jelly donut. Not overly complex, but lovely to look at – dense and inky – and an amazing value. Pay in $1 bills if you must.

Reg $35 – picked up @ Esquin for $15
