About The Wine

The wines of Federico Scarzello have heralded as one of the leading lights in the revival of traditional winemaking in Barolo.

With tiny holdings in the Sarmassa cru of Barolo, and another half hectare in Terlo and Paiagallo, totalling just five and a half hectares, Federico's wines are made in tiny quantity but have amassed a large reputation.

The Baroli are made with extended skin maceration and aged in large format oak, just the way wines have been made in the region for hundreds of years. He perfectly captures the essence of the region, with red-fruited, fragrant, charming wines that have great longevity.

This is a focused and intense Nebbiolo that will give joy in the cellar for decades to come.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"I really like all that I have tasted from the 2014 vintage so far, the wines are red fruited and very fine in structure, the best winemakers taking care to handle the macerations sensitively. This bursts from the glass with racy, perfumed strawberry fruit and exceptional overall balance. Bright red fruits, mint, flowers, spice and the sensation of crushed rocks are vibrant and lifted - this is a beautifully layered Barolo with poise, class and nuance - it has all of the textural weight and luxuriousness of the vintage, yet possesses gorgeous freshness and vitality. Great." - Andrew Guard, importer

Jancis Robinson

"Just mid ruby with orange tinges.There is huge focus and proper fruit, no oxidative or dried-fruit notes. Very compact and lithe and with finely built tannins." - Jancis Robinson MW

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 designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.
