About

About The Wine

A fantastic example of an underpriced bold red from southern Italy. Primitivo is the grape, and Salento is the region, right down in the very heel of Italy's boot.

This is a hot region, and the dried fig, deep black fruits reflect its origins. But there is also some cracked black pepper and herbal elements to balance this dark fruit sweetness.

About Rocca Vini

At the end of 19th century, Francesco Rocca started a bulk wine business and in 1936 his son Angelo enhanced the wine production and built up a cellar in Nardo, Apulia. The subsequent generations enlarged the business, bought vineyards, and in 1999 the family took over the historic Dezzani winery in Piedmont.

They now make wines from all corners of Italy, with Piemonte and Sicily the most prominent. However, their heart will always be in Salento...

DDS review

If your family were Italian, and historically made wine in the back shed, it would not taste like this - the Rossovero would be way better. It's a dense, hearty glass of red. - 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 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 1300 668 385 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).
