About

From The Importer

The Revello family encapsulate all that is brilliant about the newer generation of Barolo grower/producers.

They don't sit firmly in either the 'modernist' or 'traditionalist' vein, instead treading the line to make what, in their eyes, is a pure expression of both the Nebbiolo grape and the terroir of La Morra. Like any of the great wines in the world, their belief is that the best wines always rely on the work in the vineyard; a true grower's mentality.

Gattera exists as probably La Morra's most iconic single vineyard thanks to the enormous ancient cedar tree at the very crest. Sitting towards the top of the La Morra hill, it's Revello's coolest (temperature) Nebbiolo vineyard and usually produces the estate's most elegant wines.

It remains the only Barolo from Revello treated solely to large-format Slavonian oak, intended to showcase the elegance and always truffled nuances of this site.

Critic Reviews

James Suckling

"Attractive woody spices, vanillin and ripe red cherries and plums on the nose, making for an attractive and enticing Barolo. The palate has a sturdy and very evolved feel with a wealth of rich, assertive and smoothly wrapped tannins. Yet, it’s approachable. Drink or hold" - James Suckling (jamessuckling.com)

Antonion Galloni

"The 2015 Barolo Gattera shows all of the natural richness of this La Morra site. Immediate and rich in its first impression, the 2015 hits the palate with notable intensity, but then some of that volume tapers off a bit on the mid palate and finish. It will be interesting to see if the wine's shape evens out a bit with time." - Antonio Galloni

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.

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?

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).
