    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms

    "Modern, deeply coloured and complex, this comes from old parcels in Quintanilla de Onésimo, showing notes of wild herbs and pepper spice, fine tannins and deftly handled wood."

    Luigi Righetti

    Italy (Italy), Veneto (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    "Stewed plums and dusty earth are situated against more savory elements of black olives and tarragon. A sweet attack is counterbalanced by a bracing acidity and power that drives a long finish that ends up completely dry. Cellar or drink now with Osso Bucco."

    La Rioja Alta

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms


    "Made, as it nearly always is, from Tempranillo with 5% Mazuelo, all from Rodezno, this sees 100% older American wood. It has more zip and focus than the Alberdi from the same winery, with impressive underlying structure, savoury bramble and red cherry fruit and classic Rioja Alta sweetness."

    94 points - Tim Atkin MW, April 2018

    "The sleek and polished 2011 Viña Arana is mostly Tempranillo with 5% Mazuelo from vineyards in Rodezno and Labastida. The destemmed and crushed grapes fermented in stainless steel followed by a slow malolactic. The wine matured in used, neutral American oak barrels for three years. It's very balsamic, possibly from the extended élevage, with aromas of cigar ash, incense, noble woods, vanilla and cocoa. The palate is polished, with resolved tannins and nice, integrated acidity. 150,000 bottles produced. It's been in bottle since July 2015. They uncorked a bottle of the 1985, and the wine was lively with a developed nose, great complexity and a velvety palate. It's a wine that ages very well." - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate

    "A rich and very creamy wine with vanilla and toasted oak. Very flavorful, rich and beautiful. Full body, round tannins and a delicious finish. Decadent. Traditional Rioja style. Drink now."

  5. New Taurasi Vigna Cinque Querce DOCG by Molettieri 2010

    $414.00

    Salvatore Molettieri

    Campania (Italy), Italy (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms


    "Fully saturated ruby. Deep, spicy aromas of red cherry, raspberry, black pepper, nutmeg and licorice on the captivating nose. Then dense, powerful and complex, offering pure flavors of floral red fruit and spicy herbs and noteworthy tannin/fruit/alcohol balance. Seamless and very bright, featuring a whiplash of refreshing acidity and floral red berries on the very long finish. This is a knockout Taurasi that will age splendidly, though it’s already approachable now. The vines are roughly 18-20 years old and are located at 550-600 meters above sea level on clay-calcareous soils. Ages 36 months in barriques and large oak barrels."

    Domaine du Pégau

    France (France), Southern Rhône (France)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "A great success from a challenging vintage, the 2013 Pegau is as aromatic as ever, loaded with scents of garrigue, smoke and saddle leather. Those are backed by ample dark-fruit flavors, hints of grilled meat and firm, dusty tannins. Drink 2018–2030."

    "Deep ruby. Potent aromas of ripe dark berries, licorice pastille, woodsmoke, game and garrigue, plus a peppery nuance that adds spiciness and lift. Round and fleshy on the palate, offering intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become livelier and sweeter with air. The very long, energetic, sharply focused finish features fine-grained tannins and subtle, lingering notes of dark berries and smoked meat."

    Hacienda Monasterio

    Ribera del Duero (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "A superb vintage in the region has produced a great 2014 Reserva, a wine where they select grapes from the soils with more limestone within their estate. A blend of 80% Tempranillo with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, it has good ripeness, power and freshness, coming through as a textbook Reserva. It's still young and lively after an élevage in French barrels (40% of them new) for some 20 months. This was inspired by some wines from Bordeaux, even though it has a somewhat more Mediterranean profile... The palate of this 2014 is better than the nose at the moment. Sisseck compared 2014 to 1995, an almost perfect year in the region."

    94 points - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, Aug 2018

    "Hacienda Monasterio tends to make its best wines in cool vintages like 2014. Combining Tempranillo with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is fresh and leafy with notes of green herbs and aromatic coffee bean oak."

    Frank Family Vineyards

    California (USA), Napa Valley (USA)

    1 x 750 ml

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


    Deep opaque purple in colour, the Rutherford Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is an alluring wine, with scents of coffee, cocoa, blackberries and cedar. The wine has a wonderfully velvety texture and length, with added flavours of black liquorice, red currants and a hint of cinnamon.

     

    "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Reserve is 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petite Verdot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It is a terrific example of Rutherford viticulture, with loads of kirsch liqueur, crème de cassis, dusty, loamy soil undertones, spice box and Christmas fruitcake. It is dense ruby/purple in colour and full-bodied, with sweet, supple tannins. Among all the Reserves from Frank Family Vineyards, this seems to be the most precocious and easiest to drink at present. It certainly has 20 years of upside to it. This is a beauty and another impressive offering."

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.
