Ode to a wine of warmth, charm and cheapness

wine-generalNo need to spend a million

to drink a wine Sicilian.

John Edwards’ Villa Pozzi

(which we found hotsy-totsy)

is going for nine dollars,

which oenophilic scholars,

will tell you is a deal

bordering on a steal.


Drink deeply of the Villa

and you will sense vanilla

and blackberries and solar

and Francis Ford Coppolar.


Unlike this verse annoying

this wine is never cloying.

With screwtop, not a cork,

it goes with beef and pork,

is reliably delicious

except, of course, with fishes.
