About The Wine

The wines of Massimo Benevelli are considered some of the best value out of the Piemonte region.

A young winemaker who has a wealth of experience already under his belt, Benevelli has garnered a sizeable amount of praise from international critics for the purity, balance and transparency of his Nebbiolo and Barbera wines. For a quick glimpse into variety/region/style, the Benevelli Piero wines are not to be missed.

This Langhe Nebbiolo shows all the regional character of Piemonte Nebbiolo without the daunting tannin that can take decades to resolve. It's a fresh, unadulterated expression of the variety. 

It offers great early drinking and the potential for more complexity with time in bottle over the medium term.

Critic Reviews

92Points
The Wine Front

"It’s a lighter style with a fine rose and aniseed perfume, red cherry and dried herb, Fresh, bright, a little rasp to the tannin, but has clarity of fruit and an autumnal character to it. Almond and red fruits on a crisp finish of good length. I like the energy here, even though the tannin is just a bit scratchy and slightly hard. Grows well in glass, and likely to age pretty well, and improve over the medium term." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Marvelous Nebbiolo

This is an affordable entry level nebbiolo that tastes like a much higher priced nebbiolo.

Very impressive red fruit dominated character and that typical tar and roses lifted aromatics.

Very impressed!

Superb value

Pitch-perfect Piedmont quaffer. Will be ordering more just to have a bottle on hand for next pizza night. The delivery from Different Drop was exceptional. Smiling driver arrived with box in hand less than 24 hours after I placed the order. Unbelievable service.

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
