Description

The grapes for this wine come from the vineyards in the hills of San Luigi, San Giacomo and Madonna delle Grazie around Dogliani.

Quite classically styled, the wine has a heady dark floral perfume, with rich fruit notes. Medium to full bodied, this wine is textbook Dolcetto; dark fruits, a silky mouth-feel, and great acid/tannin balance.

It’s a laid-back wine, supple and soft with lots of flavour, all in harmony. There is a simplicity here that makes it utterly enticing.

Fermented in steel and concrete tanks under strict temperature control (28°C), racked after 4/5 days, decanted, gotten malolactic treatment and completed at a controlled temperature. Decanted a number of times during maturation in steel and concrete tanks, bottled from the month of February and ready for to be drunk at the beginning of summer.

92 Points - "Classic styling here. Cherry, red fruits, a bit of earth, spice and floral perfume. Medium-bodied, fresh, a bright ‘mineral’ feel with a light but earthy grip to tannin, and a clean finish of fine length. Such a lovely drink." Gary Walsh (Wine Front)

89 Points - "Deepish red/purple colour, with a nutty, toasty, savoury note leading the aromas, background raspberry and blackberry beneath. The wine opens with crisp acidity and rich but straightforward blueberry and mulberry flavours; a medium-bodied wine at most, with a firm backing of tannin that will enable it to stand up to flavoursome food. A superior sort of dolcetto, for sure, with some structure." Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

    Outstanding!!

    This wine definitely had the forest floor, wild flower aroma with a touch of light savory spices. Total blueberry and huckleberry flavors that start smooth, round, and full, and finish with a graphite tannic note. Very well balanced wine. -93 pts.

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.
