It’s still early days and all has been spilled. Severa is a nun with no vocation for convent life, nevertheless she enjoys being held captive in a cell, and she is certainly in good company. Her life has a dark past – with rare chipped stained glass – and about the future … Well, nothing is impossible in the life of this novice who is neither Catholic nor Orthodox. Let’s just say her chastity is a badly kept secret and as for Mass… well, what she knows, is only what’s on the tip of her tongue. She enters the body and spirit in the story In the Flesh, but know that this nun, Severa, is a third of lust, a third of strong predilection of tinkling flavors and a third of shame, which belongs in hell.

In The Flesh is a serious case, more grown-up than the crony Hot Lips.

On the nose, it shows ripe fruit and some complexity. The wine matured in barrels which has left traces on its body and a final aroma of spices. There is intense tannin on the mouth, which as a result, is balanced with concentration and grace.

In The Flesh was written so that the wine could mature well in the bottle and never lose its smell among meat dishes.
