2013 Linnaea Trifulau Barolo DOCG

Piedmonte, Italy

A true bargain of a Barolo from a winemaking couple based out of Melbourne!



About The Wine

The Linnaea project is a fascinating one. Between winemaker Michelle Edwards and agricultural scientist Daniel Fischl, this husband and wife team have carefully chosen vineyards and varieties from around the world that they want to work with, to make the kind of wines they like to drink.

The two travel to Piedmonte each year to produce this fantastic value Barolo and ship it back home.

The vines that produce the fruit for this wine sit between Castiglione Falletto and Monforte D'Alba, not far from Barolo township, and were planted up to almost 90 years ago.

They make the wine traditionally, with a long three-year sleep in large Slavonian oak before release.

It's firm yet perfumed and primed for a long life in the cellar if you like your Barolo with some age.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"It’s a tightly knit and firm wine, as is the way with many a 2013, but I’ve no problem with that. This is tense and pretty much medium-bodied, five spice and red fruits, cocoa and dried herb, some floral perfume. Cool acidity, brick dust tannin, slightly earthy/porcini on a fresh finish, tannin grabbing and shaping as it goes. It feels like it’s in evolution at present, that half-way house between youth and maturity. It’s a low compromise wine, but very good, especially for a traditionalist." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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 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).
