About

About The Wine

The “Colle Maggio” is a wine that grabs attention right away with its impenetrable pitch black hue, and enchanting deep colour.

From the Colle Maggio hillside in Villamagna, which sits at an altitude of about 200 metres above sea level, where the grape selection is rigorous, and site specific.

This wine is intense from start to finish. With wild berries aromas and notes of tobacco, coffee and cocoa powder in the finish. Complex yet supple and round with gravelly tannin pairing well to the fresh acidity.

About Cantina Torre Zambra

The medieval village of Villamagna lies in the region of Abruzzo, and is a gorgeously picturesque area, fantastic for cultivating grape vines. Torre Zambra lies on its gentle hills, reaping the benefit of sitting where the mountains meet the sea.

Their winemaking approach is a relatively natural one, with a focus on sustainable farming. The results are stunningly fresh with slurpability and consistent high quality. They are wines to be enticed by, and to contemplate.

Additional Info

From the Producer

The wine is made with rigorously selected grapes from the Colle Maggio hillside in Villamagna, at an altitude of about 200 metres on the sea level. The south-east exposure of the vines and limestone and clay soils allow the production of a red wine with a great complexity. The grapes are picked by hand and collected in small wooden crates. Once in the cellars, the long maceration in steel tanks at controlled temperature guarantees to extract all the colour from the skins.

The wines then mature for six months in concrete vats, for a further eight months in French and Slavonian oak tonneaux (20% in first-passage oaks and 80% in second-passage) and finally for four months in the bottle.

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 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 hello@differentdrop.com 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).
