About the Wine

High-toned, floral Nebbiolo from the high country of Alto Piemonte, in the DOC of Colline Novaresi.

With its more volcanic granite soil, Nebbiolo from Alto Piemonte is generally lighter and more linear than those from the limestone rich Langhe to the south.

Still tannic for sure (it is Nebb!) but with no oak use at all, natural ferment and gentle extraction this is very enjoyable on release.

About Ioppa

Though the Ioppas have been farmers and vignerons for generations it was the purchase of the best vineyard in the region in 1852 by Michelangelo Ioppa that solidified the family as keystone producers in the district.

That vineyard is still producing great wines, and similarly the Ioppa family continues to extend and innovate throughout the region, enboldened by the classifications of the region as DOCG Ghemme and DOC Colline Novaresi

Additional Info

From the Producer

Our Winery is headquartered in Romagnano Sesia and is nestled on a hilltop outside of town with a stunning view of south-west facing rolling vineyards, the Sesia River and Monte Rosa, the second highest peak in the Alps. Ghemme Wine DOCG (Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin) and Colline Novaresi Wines DOC (Controlled Designation of Origin) are produced all over the area shared by Romagnano Sesia and Ghemme.

The story of our family enterprise is one that has been etched out of tradition and flavoured with true passion and positive energy, with unwavering dedication to quality for seven generations in a row. According to historical documents, the story began in 1852, when Michelangelo Ioppa originally purchased the best vineyard land in the local hills (including Balsina vineyards), still grown nowadays. And today, almost two centuries later, the story continues with the same passion, hard work and perseverance.

Cracking Nebbiolo from Piemonte without the Barolo or Barbaresco price tag. Lunchtime Italian with great acidity and the right amount of tannic grip. - Different Drop

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 02 8376 8775 or 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).
