About The Pack

Here's an easy way to have a trip around Italy from the comfort of your own home.

While there is plenty of super-premium wines in Italy, there are a swag of bargains to be had too.

Check out these six easy drinking table wines that hugely over deliver in the bang for your buck stakes!

2016 I Veroni Chianti Rufina I Domi

The Fattoria I Veroni was founded in 1895 about 10 km from Florence, in the Chianti Rufina.

Today the company is owned by the Mariani family, which owns about 50 hectares of land, of which 30 are used for olive grove and 20 vineyards.

The vineyards, which are located at an altitude ranging from 100 to 350 meters, at the Church of St. Martin in Quona, were replanted in the 90s, totally cultivated according to the dictates of organic farming. 16 hectares have been planted with selected clones of Sangiovese, 2 acres with international varieties and the remaining hectares with white grapes for the production of the precious Vin Santo del Chianti Rufina.

The winery, located in the ancient historical site of the farm, was restored in 2004 by the current owners. They now produce soft, supple Chiantis that show wonderful fruit purity and offer excellent value for money - especially when you consider that they are farmed organically.

2018 Bibi Graetz Casamatta Rosso

From a medieval castle, Castello di Vincigliata, acquired by his parents over 60 years ago, winemaker Bibi Graetz crafts his wines on a hillside overlooking the great city of Florence. Beginning initially with only a small, 5-acre vineyard on this hillside in Fiesole, in little under two decades, Bibi has become one of Italy's most ingenious winemakers adding "cult winemaker" in addition to "talented abstract artist" to his dossier.

Since the release of his first wines in 2000 and without any formal training, Bibi Graetz has managed to stir-up the Tuscan wine scene, and with the creation of Testamatta and Colore, has made his name eponymous with great Tuscan wines. With his unique and artisanal winemaking approach, Bibi Graetz’s wines have garnered a loyal following among wine collectors and wine trade.

Sourcing grapes from parcels of old vines around Tuscany give the Bibi reds great depth and soul; while grapes from vines on the Isola del Giglio have provided proof that Tuscany can be known for beautiful white wines as well. This affinity for old vines allows for the concentrated yet elegant wines of Bibi Graetz making this portfolio a collectible from Tuscan producers.

2017 Maretti Langhe Rosso

Produced by the winemaker behind the famed wines of Mirafiore and Fontanafredda, this is a delicious little Langhe blend that gives you the personality of Piedmonte at just a snip of a price.

This is a blend of Nebbiolo and Barbaera - the region's two hero red varieties - with a mix of traditional and modern winemaking techniques used during production.

It's an unpretentious and totally smashable entry point into the wines of the region, both earthy and brightly fruited. 

If you need some quaffing table reds and you love the Piedmontese vibe, buying just doesn't get much better than this.

2018 Renato Corino Dolcetto d'Alba

After apprenticing under Barolo cult-figure Elio Altare and his cousin, the iconic Luciano Sandrone, Renato Corino split off from his family to walk his own path.

He took with him his portion of the family plots situated across some of the great crus of La Morra: Rocche dell’Annunziata, Arborina, Pozzo, Conca and Roncaglie. Since 2005, he had set about making a more modern style of Barolo, starting with a brand new winery with all the creature comforts and ability for high levels of quality control that come with it. This quality-focused approach showed immediately in the wines.

Today, his son Stefano Corino is setting the region of fire as one of Barolo's fastest rising stars. It's wines like this vibrant, juicy Dolcetto that showcase his winemaking sensibility. It's clean, it's fresh, the fruit 'pops' out of the glass. It's classy and precise and excellent value for money.

2018 G.D. Vajra Langhe Rosso

This is the type of wine that will get you hooked on the succulent red blends of Barolo and beyond.

These three varieties are made for each other, especially when guided by the capable hands of Giuseppe Vaira.

The maker describes this as "a hug from Piedmont." which sums it up nicely.

It's purpose built to be utterly un-put-down-able. A flourish of red fruits, Spring flowers and sweet spices makes this match perfectly to al matter of foods.

It's one of the most affable and delectable table wines from this region getting around at the moment and ridiculous value to boot.

2018 Babo Chianti

Justin Bubb was an Australian living and making wine in Italy for the famed Castello Di Gabbiano winery.

Luke Saturno, Justin's best friend from school and third generation Sicilian, was working in premium wine in London. When Justin decided to move back to Australia with his new wife Anna Pooley (Pooley Wines), Justin and Luke hatched a plan to bring well-priced, authentic Italian wines back to Australia. And Babo was born.

The Babo wines are made in a fresh modern style yet remain true to region and variety at the same time. These are good times wines made by a skillful winemaker from great fruit. What more could you ask for?

The Chianti is smooth, savoury and seriously easy to drink. It's one of the few Chianti to be bottled under screw cap, ensuring the pristine wine that Justin bottled in Italy finds its way to your glass. This is smashable Sangiovese 101 at a very fair price.

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
