La Villana Rosato'21
The name of the estate, La Villana, is a derogatory slang term shepherds use for farmers. Joy just so happened to have married a local shepherd, so the name is a playful riff on her home life. The joke extends to the wines' beautiful hand-drawn labels by children's book author/illustrator Jamison Odone: each label represents a friendly sheep involved in a step of the winemaking process. The wines themselves follow this lighthearted approach, and are just as playful as the labels.
A red of indigenous Italian red grapes from a young American who relocated to Italy to make wine. All organic grapes from their estate, farmed organically. The farm is polyculture, including many sheep managed by her husband, a local of the region. No sulfur is added at any point, wild ferments, no filtering. Wonderfully aromatic, distinctly Aleatico, with a brilliant acidity!
