2020 Ciu Ciu Verdicchio Dei Castelli di Jesi

Marche, Italy

A powerful and rich Marche Verdicchio, with lots of life and length.



About the Wine

When we think of Italian wines, it's often reds that spring to mind. There's nothing wrong with this, of course, but it does mean that, more often than not, the country's amazing selection of white wines are overlooked. None more so than Verdicchio.

This is such a great wine. Full bodied, with ripe citrus, juicy pears, stewed apples and a little bit of tropical fruit nectar. As it opens, some blossoms come through as well as fresh greenery. This is a versatile wine and is some seriously easy drinking. It would absolutely shine with a seafood pasta or paella though.

About Ciu Ciu

Ciu Ciu is local slang for “drink drink”, though it sounds more like a train thundering down the tracks.

It is the largest family run winery in the Marche region of central Italy, the other side of the Appenines from Tuscany. Established in 1970 by Natalino Bartolomei and his wife Anna, and continued today by sons Massimiliano and Walter, they have over 180 hectares of vineyards producing a lot of wine each year. It is therefore astonishing that all of the Ciu Ciu wines are made from certified organic grapes.

And their size means that these are often the best value organic Italian wines available in Australia.

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).
