Description

Produced by the winemaker behind the famed wines of Mirafiore and Fontanafredda, this is unbeatable value for those looking to get into the rich and savoury wines of Chianti.

The region is known for producing robust, powerful wines with drying tannins that require some time in bottle to show their best. That's not the case here. This little number is ready to go.

It's sourced from a higher, cooler part of the region known as Chianti Rufina where the fruit is more supple and approachable and refreshing acidity and minerality is the theme.

You want Sangiovese from the motherland? You want it at a bargain price? Well, you've come to the right place.

Winemaking: Traditionally vinified in small open stainless-steel fermenters, controlled to twenty-six degrees, and hand plunged daily with fermentation lasting fifteen days. Following fermentation the wine is aged for just over twelve months in large seasoned (2,000 litres) oak casks before bottling and a further six months maturation before release.

Region: Chianti, Italy
Blend: Sangiovese (100%)
ABV: 12.50%
Closure: 750ml

    Nice

    Opened and must admit I wasn’t blown away with my first 2 glasses, was too earthy and leathery. However a day later went back and just loved it. The sour cherry, tannic pithiness was front and centre and smashed the last half the bottle.

    Just wish our entry Sangiovese was as good as this

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.
