Description

The Farina Valpolicella is the "classic" blend of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara, grapes which can be pretty unexciting by themselves but go so marvellously well together.

The fermentation of the Farina Valpolicella DOC is a slow process, wherein the skins and the juice stay in contact for a long time at a cool temperature, resulting in little colour or tannin being extracted.

Expect aromas and flavours of red cherry, plum and other red berries, as well as herbs and blossom. While some Valpolicellas can be paired with rich meals, the entry-level Farina Valpolicella DOC would be more at home with tomato-based pasta dishes or even snacks.

Pressing and roller-destemming, following selected yeasts injection and controlled temperature fermentation never aboveat 25°C, with alternated pumping overs and delstages (the must is separated from the skins and then put on them again), in order to have a perfect extraction and the best elegance, without compromising the final freshness.

100% stainless steel, following ageing in the bottle.

Bright ruby red color. Fruity, delicate scents, with hints of morello cherry, plum and raspberry. Dry, but velvety and well-balanced taste with and underlying soft, harmonic, enveloping taste.

    2020 Farina Valpollicella

    This is a most respectable drop. Having just spent a day in Valpollicella, it is a goods representative of that area . I discovered that there are no birds in Valpollicella and there are no nets to protect the grapes. Imagine why...

    It is a wine that needs to be well rested before opening, and open well before drinking.

    Bountiful fruits

    Two grape types, let's make that three,

    In fair Veneto, where we lay our wine,

    From ancient styles, break to pleasures new,

    And juice and skins make fruits and florals entwine.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
