2021 Freeman Rosso Corvina Rondinella

Hilltops, NSW

A ripe and flavourful Corvina/Rondinella inspired by the reds of Northern Italy



This has flavour and character. Good drinking and very smart value.

About the Wine

The Freeman Rosso Corvina Rondinella, like their Pinot Grigio, is inspired by the wines of Northern Italy. The Rosso is a wine made purely for enjoying, rather than philosophising. With ripe fruit flavours of red berries and a savouriness giving it some complexity, it's a wine that is incredibly easy to drink. Like the Italians, open it with some pasta or a pizza so you can enjoy "la dolce vita".

Corvina and Rondinella are two of the main constituents of Valpolicella wines in Northern Italy, so it's great to see them being embraced by Australian winemakers who can see their potential. The Rosso is inspired by the table wines of Italy and delivers exactly what it promises.

Critic Reviews

The Real Review

"Medium-light red with the faintest tint of purple; the bouquet is low-key and seems a bit forward developed, with some licorice/anise and herbiness, and a trace of fresh raspberry fruit. A seasoning of nutty oak. Good intensity of medium bodied flavour, with a measured tannin grip. This has flavour and character. Good drinking and very smart value." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

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.

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.
