Ample and unctuous on the palate, with tremendous textural depth, the 2015 delivers serious fruit intensity while avoiding the hard tannins that plague many other Colorinos. Hints of sage, lavender, mint and spice notes round out this succulent, hugely delicious Tuscan wine."

    Donatella Cinelli Colombini

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    Intense and brilliant ruby red. This wine proves its richness through the slow movement of the wine rotating in the glass. Fine, complex, full of hints of ripe red fruits, and spices that come from the barrel ageing period. Of great structure, full, harmonious, and long lasting.Serve with noble meats (such as the fiorentina steak) and aged cheeses. Well matched also with Indian and Chinese spicy and tasty dishes.

    92 points -James Suckling 

     

    "Translated as "the dragon and the 8 doves," the 2015 Il Drago e le 8 Colombe is an IGT Toscana blend of 60% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 20% Sagrantino. The eight doves refer to the all-female staff at the Donatella Cinelli Colombini winery, and the dragon is Donatella's husband Carlo Gardini. I taste the hearty Sagrantino grape first both in terms the boldness of the bouquet and that slight tannic crunch you get in the mouth. The Merlot serves to soften it up, and the Sangiovese adds freshness and the pretty berry aromas that define the bouquet. This Tuscan red has the heft and substance to pair with grilled steak."

    Cavallotto

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "I had tasted this wine from barrel last year, and the wine was already shaping up beautifully back then. Staying the course, the 2015 Barolo Bricco Boschis shows extreme elegance and finesse. These are the characteristics of what is surely one of the most beautiful vineyard sites in Barolo. The Bricco Boschis cru affords a panoramic view onto much of the Langhe, with snowcapped Alps in the background. Barolo from Castiglione Falletto tends to show characteristics that are very fine, precise and linear. That's fundamentally what you get here despite the more exuberant and fleshy 2015 vintage. This wine is truly beautiful."

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.
