Sold out


A single Cru (Pernnano) Barolo that is layered, deep and brimming with energy - a great combination that reflects the beauty of Nebbiolo from Castiglione Falleto.

Length, depth and precision, with cooler red fruits and spice, and almost a fresh fruity character. The tannins are supportive rather than dominant, and there are many years ahead for this complex cracker.

Monchiero is nestled in the picturesque commune of Castiglione Falletto in the Barolo region. The terroir here is amongst some of the greatest you will find in all of Piedmont.

Monchiero have a superb parcel of Rocche di Castiglione cru in Castiglione Falletto.

95 Points - "Medium-depth red colour with a tint of purple, and a bouquet of kid leather with pot-pourri and dried-herb notes. The wine is big and bold, full-bodied and loaded with tannins which are firm yet supple. Tension and persistence, with superb balance and line. A solid Barolo. (A commune Barolo which is 100% Pernanno cru)." Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

95 Points - "It’s solely from the Pernnano cru, which sits on the opposite side (facing east) of the hill to Bricco Boschis.

Wonderful perfume of roses, raspberry and red cherry, with almond, new leather, fennel and spice tucked underneath. It’s medium-bodied, supple and succulent ripe red fruits, dense but powder fine tannin, slight orange peel flavour, cool acidity, and a long finish. Castiglione though and through for its effortless combination of perfume, finesse and restrained power. No question 2016 has delivered yet another outstanding wine here." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.
