Ciro Picariello’s tiny estate lies at the heart of Campania’s white grape region of Avellino, among the Irpinian hills.

Their wines are brilliant, Ciro has the touch, and these are superb, expressive and character filled wines that are, honestly, some of the best white wines being produced in Italy today.

Aglianico is one of Italy's great red grapes, one that produces complex, rich and deeply structured wines that can repay ageing handsomely. This cuvee is a case in point!

Ciro's wine is somewhat different; fermented and aged only in tank, he has harnessed the grape to create a fresh, vibrant style. It's a wild but fruit driven wine with much charm and complexity - at the table with Southern Italian fare, it is absolutely unbeatable!

The production area is Mortemarano which is located at 650 meters above sea level. The grape variety is 100% Aglianico. Raised in the Avellino radial pattern, average age of the plants 80 years. The vinification, the hand-picked grapes, are de-stemmed and subjected to an initial maceration. The temperature of the alcoholic fermentation is controlled, while the maceration is optimised with pumping over of the must on the skins. After racking, a maturation period of 24 months in steel follows, refinement in the bottle is 4 months before release. Deep, complex, with pleasantly present tannins. Mineral.

    A very fresh, lively and mineral style of Aglianico. Fruit forward, floral and spicy. Loved it.

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.
