2020 Cascina Roccalini Langhe Nebbiolo

From the younger vines in Paulo’s estate, as the vineyard matures this is surely destined to become a Barbaresco DOCG.

Plump and full-bodied, like most of the Nebbiolo from the region there is a touch of richness to the fruit on the nose. The palate has that warm embrace of Nebbiolo tannin, gritty and mouthfilling. It’s rustic, maybe a little bit old school, but with no oak influence. The wine is raised in concrete instead, allowing the purity of fruit to shine through. Rose-hip, that iron-ferrous minerality and sweetish berry fruit character bring it all together.

Traditional Nebbiolo in all its glory, wrapped in a full body suit.

2019 Castello dei Rampolla Sangiovese di Santa Lucia

Sangiovese di Santa Lucia is 100% Sangiovese raised in amphora and bottled without sulphur. It’s a characterful wine that leaps from the glass with wild flowers, herbs, and berries. There is a juicy immediacy to the fruit and the energy is contagious, primary without being simple.

Are the notes of dusty red clay purely a trick of the mind? Who knows, and frankly, when a wine is this glorious, who cares? Drink this one whilst you cellar your Chianti Classico!

2020 Folonari Morellino di Scansano

This is a gorgeous Sangiovese from the sunny south of Tuscany, crafted by a family with over two centuries of winemaking history.

It isn't handled with too much oak in the winery, resulting in a crisp red wine filled with flavours of cherries and strawberries. It finishes with a signature savoury, dry finish that this Italian variety is so well known for.

Perfectly balanced and an excellent accompaniment to meals. Delish!

2018 Olek Bondonio Barbaresco Roncagliette

From his front yard vineyard, this Barbaresco from Olek Bondonio comes off vines planted by his family over 50 years ago. It’s a pretty special vineyard with wines from his neighbour (Gaja) made from the same fruit selling for over $500 a bottle.

It's quite lively, with bursting red fruit beginning this wild journey. It has quite a rich character, almost confectionary in fact. It is, however, still Italianate Nebbiolo, and the grate of pumice stone like tannin is ever present, keeping the sweet fruit character in check. So fragrant still, and ready to drink.

This is old-school Nebbiolo with a natural bent, incredibly complex, with power and poise.

2017 Antoniotti Bramaterra Nebbiolo Croatina Vespolina

The Antoniotti Bramaterra Nebbiolo blend is such a fresh and enjoyable Piemonte red - it has immense quality at a very attractive price.

This Nebbiolo-dominant wine has brought some friends along, namely Croatina, Vespolina and a touch of Bonard -these are grapes that aren't often seen as straight varietals but are commonly found in the wines (even if they're not listed on the label).

This is from the Alto Piemonte region of Bramaterra, whcih is closer to Switzerland than Barolo. Unlike the Nebbiolos found in Barolo and Barbaresco, this is a lot more approachable when young; while there is sufficient tannin, it is more delicate and less mouth coating, due to thirty months in large oak barrels.

Red fruit predominates, with some notes of herbs and a spicy edge, making for an elegant and juicy wine that's drinking exceptionally well right now.

2020 Ca'Rugate Rio Albo Valpolicella

The Rio Albo from Ca'Rugate is produced from the best grapes selected out of their vineyards in the hilly area of Montecchiadi Crosara in the Valpolicella DOC.

Though full bodied, it’s quite juicy and pure, with cool acidity. Energetic and long, the wine lingers on its floral components and lip-smacking minerality.

Give this zesty Valpolicella a slight chill if that tickles you fancy, it’s great value, and a cracking wine.

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

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. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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 hello@differentdrop.com 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.
