About The Wine

The Dolgliani region is ground zero for dense, powerhouse Dolcettos, and this is exhibit A - dark blackberry and sour cherry, some herbal rusticity and a cunning bittersweet finish.

Sourced from three different vineyard sites, and gently macerated for up to 24 days. The tannin and structure is all grape-derived, no oak was harmed in the making of this wine.

This 2019 vintage is the first to be certified organic.

About Monterustico

The Vaira family are Barolo legends with their GD Vajra and Luigi Baudana wines but for their latest venture they went over the hills to the north into Dogliani, when they purchased the Monterustico estate a few years back.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The wine is a beautiful, deep violet-purple in colour. The brooding nose is a cornucopia of blueberries, wild berries and delicate mineral nuances. There’s a suggestion of liquorice and Mediterranean herbs, too. The palate is structured yet balanced by wonderful, velvety fruit. With its long and pure finish, this is a wine that promises a long life ahead, and it provides a joyful pairing with a wide range of dishes. – Giuseppe Vaira

DDS review

What's the distance to sun? This is how far removed the Monterustico is from what we perceive Dolcetto to be in Australia. Love the licorice intensity and dark Palpatinian power. - Different Drop

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).
