About The Wine

This is the wine that perhaps best represents the Cavallotto family. It distills the essence of their Bricco Boschis cru into a singluar Barolo that speaks of site and gentle handling.

This cuveé is well known for being a traditionalists dream. This is the essence of Barolo, an imperious wine of stature and structure that will fully reveal itself over the coming decades.

This is a special wine, one that only makes it to Australia in small quantities. If you love your Nebbiolo, firm, proud and cellar-worthy, this deserves a place in your collection.

About Cavallotto

The Cavallotto family have owned and farmed the legendary Bricco Boschis cru since 1929.

Passed down for four generations, this small grower is considered one of the hidden gems of Piemonte and something of a benchmark for the Castiglione Falletto commune. Their wines are built in a staunchly traditional framework. These are classic Piemontese wines that show authority and structure, one for the true lovers of the classics.

In the words of Antonio Galloni, "Cavallotto may very well be the greatest Barolo producer few people have ever heard of, something that continues to mystify me."

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).
