About The Wine

Justin Bubb was an Australian living and making wine in Italy for the famed Castello Di Gabbiano winery.

Luke Saturno, Justin's best friend from school and third generation Sicilian, was working in premium wine in London. When Justin decided to move back to Australia with his new wife Anna Pooley (Pooley Wines), Justin and Luke hatched a plan to bring well-priced, authentic Italian wines back to Australia. And Babo was born.

The Babo wines are made in a fresh modern style yet remain true to region and variety at the same time. These are good times wines made by a skillful winemaker from great fruit. What more could you ask for?

This great little offering may be the first Prosecco Rose to be imported to Australia. It's a blend of traditional Glera with a splash of Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) thrown in for a blush of colour.

It's made using the classic Charmat method, the finish is gently fruity and the spritz is spot on. It's a fun, cheeky sparkling for your next Sunday session.

Additional Info

From The Producer

VINEYARD

Fruit is sourced from vineyards located in San Martino al Tagliamento near Pordenone in the province of Friuli Venezia Giulia.

WINEMAKING

Glera fruit was picked at 10 Baume and fermented in stainless steel vats to produce the base wine, blended with Pinot Nero sourced locally in Friuli. Charmat method is used for secondary fermentation, and the wine remaining on lees after to build further complexity.

TASTING

Fine and persistent perlage, bouquet is full of fruity notes that recall raspberry and blackberry. Beautiful clean, crisp but not overly dry finish.

Blend : Glera (89%), Prosecco (11%)
Drink Until : 2022

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Prosecco rosato very recently allowed under D.O.C rules. This is 89% Glera and 11% Pinot Nero. This is a brut style, with 8g/L residual sugar.  A little raspberry in with white peach and a little brine. Fresh, crisp, light prickling of bubble, subtle blackcurrant flavour, fine chalky texture, and a dry gently saline finish of solid length. Not overly complex, but refreshing and good to drink." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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).
