2015 Cinque Campi Le Marcone Malbo Gentile Cabernet Sauvignon Marzemino

Emilia Romagna, Italy

A blend of Cabernet and a lively local variety, Marzemino. It's rich, brooding and thick with tannin.


Out of Stock

Good gear in a fuller figured red world.

About The Wine

The Le Marcone vineyard is a West-facing site that produces powerful full-bodied reds with great density and richness.

Here, winemaker Vanni Nizzoli brings a delicious blend of Cabernet and Marzemino to bare. It has been bottled without fining, filtration, or adjustments of any kind.

In this Cabernet you can see the rugged beauty of Vanni's home. It has a distinct savouriness, accents of wild herbs and fresh-tilled earth, framed by moreish tannin that will see the wine casually unfurl in bottle over the medium term. A 'pop' of lively red fruit Marzemino’s comes from the Marzemino.

It's a mile from Bordeaux, and brilliant for it.

About Cinque Campi

Cinque Campi translates to Five Fields in English.

This collection of vineyards in the foothills of the Reggiano Appennine Mountains has been farmed by Vanni Nizzoli’s family, unbroken, for over 200 years.

For the centuries before, the grapes were farmed organically just for the family's consumption, until they began their first commercial releases in 1980. In 2003, the vineyards became certified organic, enabling the reintroduction of local varieties for the family to truly represent the traditions of their home.

These are the right grapes grown i the right place by a family with a deep connection with the land. Raw, wild and untamed, the wines of Cinque Campi are as authentic as you will see anywhere on the planet.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Thick set but fresh, chewy, crunchy and dark berried, black olive, salted green herbs. Chalky, chewy, grunty tannins, inky and kind of hectic in the best possible way. Slick and full brute, good though, just whacks you around with its oomph and muscle, though everything is in place here and the tannins are Italianate and superb. Good gear in a fuller figured red world." - Mike Bennie (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 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.

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).
