Description

The Lamoresca Rosso is a wine made for drinking with gusto.

It's a bright, fleet-footed red blend of Frappato, Nero d'Avola and Grenache.

The fruit is lovingly farmed by husband and wife team, Filippo and Nancy Rizzo. They see this as a blend of some of their best fruit.

It's a ripe, plump, sunny red wine that shows a cavalcade of red berries, plums and exotic spice.

If you're looking for a charming Italian table wine with a bit of an edge, this will light up any dinner table.

A selection of Frappato, Nero d’Avola and Grenache from forty year old vines in Filippo’s home vineyard, planted over clay and sand at an elevation of 430 metres. This ferments with the skins in plastic containers for a month before being pressed off to concrete for a year of élevage. It is a wine that feels resolutely Mediterranean, with soft tannins and flavours of dark fruit, flowers and woody herbs.

91 Points - "As I often say, Lamoresca Rosso is up and down. Sometimes great, sometimes very strange. This is a curious wine. It’s almost fizzy like a Lambrusco, which is fine, but duly noted. There’s damp earth, cherry, amaro herbs, fruit tingle tang, blood orange and almond, kind of gamey too, with some sandstone tannin, and a spicy cherry and earth finish of solid length. Iron filings. This wine will split the room. I kind of like its meaty wildness and wildflower perfume, but gee, it’s on the periphery of what you might call ‘the normal wine experience’. Nevertheless gamey, and intriguing. Perhaps more Newtown than Mosman, more Fitzroy than Toorak, but hey, it’s fun. And also kind of juicy in a feral sort of way." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

    good drop

    pure modern Sicilian style, chill very slightly in the fridge for 15 minutes before serving, just pleasant with a plate of antipasti under shaded tree

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.
