About The Pack

This trio of wonderful wines, a white and two reds, highlights the very best of Sicily's icon producers.

We have the glorious Girolamo Russo Etna Bianco, the natural stylings of COS with their Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico delle Fontane, and finally one of Passopisciaro's Contrada wines, the 2018 Porcaria.

Might be the best mixed pack we've ever put together....

2021 Girolamo Russo Etna Bianco Nerina

You can't really blame us for getting excited about Etna wines when we keep on seeing wines of this quality and interest - time and time again - coming from those volcanic slopes. This is made predominately from Carricante, with 25% made up from other Sicilian native grapes (Catarratto, Inzolia, Grecanico, Minnella and Coda di Volpe).

There is something magical happening here. It instantly transports you into an Italian fruit orchard, with aromas of ripe oranges and citrus leaves, honey water, ginger and dried flowers. There is a pleasant bucolic vibe here. The palate is rich and ripe, with a plump texture and a lean acid, undercut but a savoury minerality. Oooh, it's good. This is very dolce vita.

2017 COS Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico delle Fontane DOCG

Sicily has 23 DOCs but just one DOCG, Cerasuolo di Vittoria, and the three friends who founded COS were the first to bottle a DOCG in Sicilian history.

This rare bird is a delicious but serious blend of Nero d'Avola and Frappato, coming vineyard sites in Fontane at the very south-eastern tip of the island, not far from Malta and Africa.

Initial fermentation is in concrete before being moved to large botti for extra ageing. And it's a wine you can age too as it comes with a good dose of subtle dry tannin, matched by spicy red fruits and a hint of smoke and tobacco.

A smoothly intense and complex Sicilian red made by one of the island's most fascinating producers.

2018 Passopisciaro Contrada Porcaria

Passopisciaro produces six unique Nerello Mascalese wines, the idea being to showcase the profound differences in the terroir; lava flow, aspect, and altitude, of the various Contrada (single vineyard) that they work with.

Contrada Porcaria is a large old domain at 650m, with topsoil composed of frail sheets of lava the splinter underfoot. This Contrada produces the fullest style of the 6 individual wines. It has body and finesse, while the palate is savoury and structured, with ripe red fruit and a citrus zest character, alongside fine-grained tannins, and bright acidity.

A denser wine, this is one that will reward those with patience to let it unfurl.

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.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
