About the Wine

As with many family estates in Piedmont, the new generation at Mauro Molino are proving themselves extremely capable in taking the reins.

Mauro’s children Matteo and Martina are sensitive to their regional heritage, and whilst progressive, have a keen respect for their father’s work.

The Molino estate may not have the high profile of others, but it always delivers calling card Barolo. Classic, approachable and excellent value for money. In a top vintage like 2016, you'd do well to snap up a few.

About Mauro Molino

Mauro Molino first bottled under his own label in 1982, but has much deeper family roots in the region. His father Giuseppe never bottled his own wine, but was a founding member of the Terre del Barolo cooperative in 1958. He believed in the potential that lay in his land.

Mindful of tradition, but unbound by dogma beautifully describes this estate, now in the hands of Mauro's children Martina and Matteo.

With 16 hectares now under vine, the estate is based in the La Morra commune, known for its graceful, floral and softly textured Barolo.

The Wine Advocate

Here's a classic interpretation of this vintage and a wine that will bring a big return on such a relatively small investment with proper cellaring. The 2016 Barolo is a tonic and compact expression of Nebbiolo that will flesh out and take on more volume with time. This estate is based in the comune or village of La Morra, known for graceful, floral and softly textured Baroli. However, this wine is a blend of fruit from Annunziata and Berri in La Morra and Perno in Monforte d'Alba. - Monica Larner

FaQs

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 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com 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).
