Description

The Lamoresca Bianco is made from Vermentino grapes farmed by Filippo and Nancy Rizzo.

Their pristine fruit and lo-fi winemaking techniques produce and wonderfully textural example of the variety.

Vermentino can be neutral at times, sometimes bland or insipid. Not the case here. Wild fermented with a few days on skins and released after a good rest in bottle - it takes Vermentino into delicious new territory.

It's glassy, saline and cut with a nervy acidity. More time in bottle will reveal more levels of detail and flavour, if you can keep your hands off it, that is.

"It’s gently nutty, saline, honey and chamomile, and more of those things than fruit in a way, though there is a preserved lemon and tangerine thing. It’s tangy, a fine chalky grip to texture, salted pistachio and almond, with a waxy and dusty textured finish. Very nice."
- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

94 Points - "Vermentino held on skins for two days. Aged in cement and old wood. Goes through malo. No added sulphur. No fining. No filtering. It’s a bolder expression of Bianco in 2022, delivering quite a bit of rich flavour. It’s gently nutty, saline, honey and chamomile, and more of those things than fruit in a way, though there is a preserved lemon and tangerine thing. It’s tangy, a fine chalky grip to texture, salted pistachio and almond, with a waxy and dusty textured finish. Very nice. I think you either like these wines, or you don’t, though I find most people do, perhaps curiously." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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 of 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, and 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.

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.
