Description

The wines of Massimo Benevelli are considered some of the best value out of the Piemonte region.

A young winemaker who has a wealth of experience already under his belt, Benevelli has garnered a sizeable amount of praise from international critics for the purity, balance and transparency of his Nebbiolo and Barbera wines. For a quick glimpse into variety/region/style, the Benevelli Piero wines are not to be missed.

This Langhe Nebbiolo shows all the regional character of Piemonte Nebbiolo without the daunting tannin that can take decades to resolve. It's a fresh, unadulterated expression of the variety.

It offers great early drinking and the potential for more complexity with time in bottle over the medium term.

"Very good, kind of belies the hot vintage, given how pretty and red fruited it is, albeit you notice the acidity is little more low key. Lovely wine. As ever."
- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Benevelli Piero is situated in Monforte d'Alba in the heart of Barolo Langa. The estate is a committed to preserving traditions and not abandoning the teachings of those who came before them, whilst at the same time supplementing this knowledge with the use of modern technologies.
The wine is ruby red with violet hues. Aromas of intense, full hints of violet, raspberry and roses. Harmonic and dry with a pleasant fruity soft finish.

Alcohol : 14.5%

93 Points - "Year in, year out, this wine always performs, even in a hot vintage like 2022. Red fruit, cherries, almonds, a little rosy perfume along with baking spice and new leather. It’s medium-bodied, juicy red fruits and tobacco, plush cocoa powder tannin does most of the structural work, given the acidity is kind of soft and unobtrusive, and the finish is firm and dustily tannic, with a twist of orange peel. Very good, kind of belies the hot vintage, given how pretty and red fruited it is, albeit you notice the acidity is little more low key. Lovely wine. As ever." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

    Seriously good Italian Neb

    Probably one of the best value Nebbiolos around at the moment - great to drink now, but is going to also age quite nicely over the next 5-6 years. Also under screwcap which is a bit of an oddity out of Piedmont, but takes away the cork-lotto risk

    Langhe Nebbiolo

    Pleasant but lacking the finesse of others. Adequate depth of flavour and interest to prevent criticism but not a standout.

    Marvelous Nebbiolo

    This is an affordable entry level nebbiolo that tastes like a much higher priced nebbiolo.

    Very impressive red fruit dominated character and that typical tar and roses lifted aromatics.

    Very impressed!

    Superb value

    Pitch-perfect Piedmont quaffer. Will be ordering more just to have a bottle on hand for next pizza night. The delivery from Different Drop was exceptional. Smiling driver arrived with box in hand less than 24 hours after I placed the order. Unbelievable service.

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.
