A true classic here from one of the original producers in Barolo.

The Borgogno Barolo hails from five of the most prestigious vineyards in and around the village of Barolo. The vineyards are Cannubi, Cannubi San Lorenzo, Fossati, Liste, San Pietro delle Viole - an envious roll call and some very serious territory for producing this stunning Nebbiolo representative of both the region and the vintage.

Borgogno have never faultered in their commitment to producing wines in a traditional mould. This approach is paying serious dividends at the moment as the wines continue to rise above the pack.

This is the classic, traditional "Formula" used by the ancient Barolo Families to produce a Barolo which embraces and melts each of the peculiar characters of the different vineyards and terroirs of the Barolo area.

The Barolo Classic Borgogno is made by the combination of the grapes coming from five of the most prestigious vineyards of the Barolo area: Cannubi, Cannubi San Lorenzo, Fossati, Liste, San Pietro delle Viole.

This is not just a Barolo, it is much more. It fully reflects the elegance and the power of a real Barolo from the Village of Barolo..

94 Points - "Classic Borgogno perfume, even from a hot year. Pressed roses, almond paste, red fruit, a smattering of dried herb and orange. Medium-bodied, red fruit, cherry, nutty flavour, but also quite fine and fresh, some brick dust tannin with a subtle orange peel bitterness, juicy cherry and fine dusty grip on a long fresh finish. A little more chewy and rugged than the 2016, but still offers the classic Borgogno experience. 2023-2033+. " - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

92 Points - "Pale garnet with brick tints. On the nose, there are classic sour cherry fruit, orange peel, fennel and chalk dust aromas, while any barrel influence is barely discernible. Whilst the wine is only just medium-bodied, the palate has bright and tangy fruit, blood orange, a hint of sweet spice and ultra-fine tannins. The finish is deceptively long. This is old school Barolo and an excellent introduction to the style, approachable now or one for the cellar." - Steve Blandford (The Real Review)

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.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

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.
