About the Wine

The Cigliuti Langhe Nebbiolo comes from young vines, showing a mix of ripe fruit, floral notes, and spicy characters, as well as some savoury notes of cedar and tobacco. The fermentation in steel and then ageing in steel and Slavonian oak barrels helps to emphasise the fruit, with very little oak influence in the wine. This is definitely a food wine, and it will go really well with pasta dishes.

The Langhe area of Piemonte is home to a vast array of grape varieties, such as Arneis, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Dolcetto, and Nebbiolo. You may find that many of the Langhe DOC wines are as good as or even better than some DOCG wines made nearby.

About Cigliuti

The Fratelli Cigliuti winery is situated on the Serraboella hill, some 350 metres above sea level overlooking Neive, one of three villages responsible for producing Barbaresco. Renato inherited his father’s 6.5 hectare property which remains family owned and run and is now into its fifth generation with daughters Claudia and Sylvia.

Winemaking techniques lean towards the traditional. Estate-grown, handpicked grapes are fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel, then aged in larger Slavonian oak barrels along with some barriques. Dolcetto and Nebbiolo grapes grow in the calcareous soils of the southwest-facing vineyards, while Barbera is cultivated on clayey sites with a south-eastern exposure. The wines show great complexity, minerality and personality.

The Wine Front

"Lots of ripe raspberry, floral, spicy. Juiciness and vibrant but no shortage of firm chalky tannin, slightly raw feeling, though I don’t mind that here. Cherry and amonds in the mix, and attractive freshness. Structure and charm. Lovely." Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Delivery times vary considerably with Australia Post and unfortunately there is no Express Delivery Option for wine (because it is fragile and heavy).

Strict government health and safety requirements and very high parcel volumes are causing significant backlogs at the main NSW and VIC sorting facilities.

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).
