So interesting and great to drink. A top vintage for Lamoresca.

About The Wine

The Lamoresca Rosso is a wine made for drinking with gusto.

It's a bright, fleet-footed red blend of Frappato, Nero d'Avola and Grenache.

The fruit is lovingly farmed by husband and wife team, Filippo and Nancy Rizzo. They see this as a blend of some of their best fruit.

It's a ripe, plump, sunny red wine that shows a cavalcade of red berries, plums and exotic spice.

If you're looking for a charming Italian table wine with a bit of an edge, this will light up any dinner table.

About Lamoresca

Lamoresca was built from the ground up by the hands of Filippo and Nancy Rizzo.

The two had a passion for natural wines and growing things organically. After years spreading the good word of natural wine in retail and hospitality in Belgium, the two moved to Sicily and bought a farm populated with 46 ancient olive trees.

Now their farm, located 50km from the nearest vineyard, produces some of the most compelling, vibrant, and thirst-slaking wines in Sicily.

Their reds are bright, crunchy and have a real sense of life to them, the white is saline and exotic. These are wines of rare character and great energy. Pure, natural, and fundamentally delicious to the last drop.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Source of fruit: Gigliotto Vineyard, in the center of Sicily, San Michele di Ganzaria, Province of Catania.

A selection of Frappato, Nero d’Avola and Grenache from forty year old vines in Filippo’s home vineyard, planted over clay and sand at an elevation of 430 metres. This ferments with the skins in plastic containers for a month before being pressed off to concrete for a year of élevage. It is a wine that feels resolutely Mediterranean, with soft tannins and flavours of dark fruit, flowers and woody herbs.

Blend : Frappato (60%), Nero d'Avola (35%), Grenache (5%)
ABV : 13.50%
Closure : Cork
Drink Until : 2024
Bottle Size : 750ml

"Cherry, raspberry, spice and dried herb rub, a little peat and dried flowers. Medium-bodied, freeze dried berries, stony tannin, fresh and flavoursome, with loads of scrub herb perfume and spice. So interesting and great to drink. A top vintage for Lamoresca." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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 02 8376 8775 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).
