    Donatella Cinelli Colombini

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Risotto


    "They’ve reduced the oak aging over the years.  It shows.  Graceful, elegant, firm--not aggressive--tannins.  Alluring!"

    95 points - Michael Apstein, Wine Review Online, Feb 2018

    "Aromas of rose petals and ripe strawberries follow through to a full body. Layered and chewy with ripe tannins and a flavorful and intense finish. Serious and structured."

    94 points - James Suckling, Sept 2018

    Le Ragnaie

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    "Extremely perfumed and decadent with dried fruit, orange peel and meat on the nose. Full body, linear and bright with intense citrus. Long and powerful. Like a Barolo! Drink or hold. Made from organic grapes."

    95 points - James Suckling, November 2017

    "Mid ruby with bright, bricky tinges. Reductive and stalky on the nose. I would decant this. Very elegant cherry fruit of great precision and with bags of coating tannins. Real class."

    Graziano Pra

    Italy (Italy), Veneto (Italy)

    3 x 1500 ml

    Veal roasted


    "The Prà 2013 Amarone della Valpolicella Morandina is a dense and thickly extracted expression that offers black fruit, dried prune, spice, leather, tar and tobacco all rolled together into a single, powerful delivery. The wine peels back thick layers to reveal a full-bodied style with just enough fresh acidity to keep it from feeling too rich or heavy. Pair this wine with barbecued baby back ribs."

  4. $1,439.94

    Bruno Rocca

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750ml

    Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat


    "Packaged with the black label, the Bruno Rocca 2013 Barbaresco Maria Adelaide pours from the bottle with a medium garnet color and an elegantly compact appearance. The bouquet has moved away from primary intensity to embrace some beautiful tertiary definition; however, it appears lively and bright nonetheless. This special bottling (made with a selection of the estate's best fruit) shows lots of the proverbial red fruit energy (as opposed to dark fruit) that is so specific to Nebbiolo. Maria Adelaide undergoes a more drawn out oak regime with 18 months in barrique followed by another 12 months in oak casks. A mere 3,000 bottles exist."

  5. New Bigger Red VQA 3L Jeroboam by Big Head 2013

    $310.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 3000 ml

    Cured Meat, Red Meat, Steak, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted


    “Despite it’s softer, plusher reputation of the Bordeaux grapes in the rest of the world, we have experienced that Merlot is a tight and grippy SOB. We have 100 cases of 2012 Merlot that we don’t plan on releasing until 2022 (We hope). It is definitely the majority stock-holder in this blend. Red, blue, black fruit along with meat, spice and vanilla are hold together tightly. “Leave me alone” it screams. Decant, a lot. Cigars and dark chocolate and sub-zero temperatures are all I can think of.”

  6. New Cabernet Sauvignon VQA 3L Jeroboam by Big Head 2013

    $310.00

    Big Head

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 3000 ml

    Breads, Duck breast, Foie gras, Red Meat, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Steak, Veal roasted


    “Our first Cabernet Sauvignon on it’s own, this example shows plenty of dark red fruit, with sage and tea leaf undertones. The tannins are still a little tight, but a couple hours of decanting will remedy that. Open it, pour a glass, leave it for a couple days. Magic. Another red meat candidate. This time striploin or porterhouse come to mind. Sorry vegetarians, tempeh and soy won’t stand up to this beast (see what we did there?)".

At WineOnline.ca we travel the world to ensure we can offer our clients the best red wine, along with the best red wine to be found anywhere. There are all sorts of types of red wines. To name some we have, dry red wine, sweet red wine, full bodied red wine, medium bodied red wine, light red wine, tannic red wine and structured red wine. There is a litany of words used to describe red wine types. There are 10’s of thousands of red wines produced all over the world. There are 1000's of different red grape varietals. Italy, on its own, has over 2000 indigenous grape varietals used to produce red wines of differing style. The most famous grape varietals used in the productions of top red wines are likely those from Bordeaux which include; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Pinot Noir is another very popular red wine varietal which is the only red grape they use for red wine production in Burgundy. In Burgundy, they do not even label the wines with the varietal, but rather the vineyard from which the grapes were grown. A few of the famous ones are Romanee Conti, La Tache, Vosne Romanee, Nuits St Georges, but there are many more good red wine types. At WineOnline.ca, one of our many, but perhaps our most important, job is to taste as many of these wines as possible, and bring in the best, along with the best values, in order to make them available to our clients. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

When it comes to red wine, people’s preferences can be all over the map. Some people choose to take the safe road when it comes to drinking red wine. We do not advocate this approach. Different red wine is going to be appropriate for different times of the day/night/evening etc. The food you are eating is going to affect the taste of your red wine and the taste of your red wine is going to change the flavour of your food. The trick is to find the best red wine takes some experimentation. Don’t just go with the tried and true as you are missing out. Pinot Noir with your fish can be delectable. Nebbiolo with lamb is divine. How could you not love a little Chianti, (Sangiovese), with your eggplant Parmesan? We encourage experimentation. We consider it our job, to help you improve your wine life.
