2019 La Villana Bianco Procanico

Lazio, Italy

After leaving her job in New York and interning with Le Coste for 15 months, Joy has revived some old micro volcanic vineyards in Gradoli, Lazio and is making insanely delicious wines. This one is Procanico and hints of Malvasia. Foot-stomped and direct pressed then fermented in stainless. The volcanic and ash driven soil of the region pushed forward the high acidity and energy of this sulphur free number. Decant and open for an hour to blow off the yeast, welcomes with apricots and citrus. Stunning. Rated a casual 4.3/5 on Vivino

About the maker

After interning with the infamous Le Coste of Lazio, Joy Kull of the USA decided that natural winemaking was the path she wanted to forge.

Joy stands by a very similar philosophy to that of Le Coste. Everything starts in the vineyard for her. She uses a fraction of the amount of copper and sulphur of conventional viticulturists and supplements with biodynamic preparations. Her microvineyards were rescued and revived in Gradoli and most are planted with Greghetto (sangiovese) and Procanico (trebbiano) and other local varietals including Malvasia, Moscato, Ciliegiolo, and Montepulciano. In the cellar Joy remains completely hands-off. No additives, no speeding up of natural fermentation, bringing it back to the basics and allowing the energy and the volcanic power of the area to shine through in her magical wines.
