South of Siena, the stunning hillside vineyards of Montalcino are dedicated to the Sangiovese grape.

Here, Rosso is the junior wine, released for early drinking ahead of big brother Brunello. No mere second string, this silky San Polo Rosso’s a regular charmer.

Showcasing Sangiovese’s classic energy, it’s textured and juicy with sweet red cherry and woody herbals.

Located at 450m above sea level, the vineyards are planted mixed soils of clay and limestone.

Farming is organic as well the entire production process meeting the standards for CasaClima Wine Certification.

With south to southeastern exposure, grapes are hand harvested. Fermentation takes place in large concrete tanks and ageing in large format oak barrels (2000 and 4000 litre).

90 Points - "Good red color. Fresh, straightforward red cherry, herb, and gentle pepper aromas. Then firmer cherry and berry skin flavors are framed by dusty tannins and complicated by earth tones. The cherry note lingers on the refreshingly energetic finish. Made with organically grown grapes from the south-eastern section of Montalcino, this is a declassified Brunello." - Ian D'Agata (Decanter Magazine)

91 Points - "The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is a robust and ripe expression with plenty of round and soft fruit. This is a well-made wine that benefits from excellent fruit from a classic vintage. The wine shows rich and saturated cherry and blackberry flavors with firm texture to match. - Monica Larner (The Wine Advocate)

90 Points - "Wild strawberries, red cherries and freshly cut herbs. Medium body, fresh acidity and a tangy finish." - James Suckling (JamesSuckling.com)

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.


If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
