An Elegant Closure


Tonight we stripped the capsule from a Sicilian Nero D'Avola to find the wine stoppered with this lovely closure. It's glass, with a soft plastic gasket. It lifted easily from the lip, and made a satisfying clink when set down beside the bottle. A bauble like this becomes part of the aesthetics of experience, part of the enjoyment. It's a keeper.
