Italy is jumping onto the critter wine bandwagon. The latest concept wine shown around Vinitaly was a label called 3 Girls and a Donkey
. The first wines that have been kicked around will be entry level wines, a Falanghina white and a Montepulciano d’Abruzzo red. The wines should retail for under US $7.The thinking behind these concept wines is to offer a label that is young and a little irreverent, with the requisite critter, in this case a baby donkey. The 3 girls adds a little Charlie’s Angel retro-appeal.
Available sometime in the fall of 2007, or sooner, if someone gets off their ass and does something about it.
