Piedmont, Italy

About The Wine

Bussia is the famed single vineyard of the picturesque Barolo village of Monforte.

From the extraordinary 2016 vintage, this carries classically structured tannins, with a lovely heft and density of dark cherry fruit.

A powerful generous drink worthy of some time in decanter now, that’ll also age beautifully for years to come.

About Podere Ruggeri Corsini

Podere Ruggeri Corsini is the work of couple Loredana Addari and Nicola Argamante.

After studies in viticulture and winemaking, they abandoned well-paying city jobs to set up their estate in Monforte, at the heart of Piedmont’s famously rolling hills in 1995.

Now in the charge of eldest daughter Francesca, this is small family affair offering exceptional value and quality.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

“Medium to full red colour with a purple tint. The bouquet is earthy and leathery, the scent of old leather upholstery, but clean and subtly nuanced with traces of dried herbs, dried flowers, almonds and faint hints of spices. The wine is full-bodied, powerfully built and tannic, a rugged wine but not without elegance and class. Long, long carry. There is great depth here, a wine that undoubtedly needs time to unravel its true gifts.” - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

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 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).
