About

About the Wine

Enticing, nervy Soave, from Garganega grape which is all a bit of a mouthful literally and figuratively.

Sourced from south-facing vineyards among the spectacular volcanic hills of the Soave DOC. No oak, but some time on lees in tank for some added texture.

Just a lovely, beautifully-balanced, food-friendly Italian white, and tip-top value!

About Le Battistelle

The farm of Gelmino and Cristina Dal Bosco is situated in the hamlet of Brognoligo, in the heart of the Soave Classico production area, which is limited only to the communes of Soave and Monteforte d’Alpone, in the province of Verona.

The company started in 2002, after the family gave up selling their grapes to a local wine Cooperative and began a proper vinification. The farm grows 9 hectares vineyard divided in many small pieces all situated in the hills of Brognoligo. The more united piece is the “Battistelle vineyard” situated in the cru of the “Castellaro” hill and the cellar takes its name right from it.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Pale straw yellow colour, this aromatic wine displays a full range of ripe fruit and white flowers characters. On the palate, the fruity, elegant nuances are stylishly intertwined with a lively minerality. Full of energy and flavour, this is offset by a refreshing acidity to give a balanced finish.

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).
