    Rocca delle Macie

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat


    The Rocca delle Macìe 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Gioveto is a single-vineyard expression of Sangiovese that is dark and concentrated. This features a core of cherry flavors allied to leather, iron, sandalwood and tobacco notes. Shows a touch of sweetness midpalate, backed by a muscular structure and a long finish.

    "I appreciate the aromas of forest flowers, cedar and plums that follow through to a full body with round, chewy tannins and a structured finish. Extremely well done. Still very youthful. Try after 2021."

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


    "Great value in California cabernet. From the volcanic soils of the Pickberry Vineyard on Sonoma Mountain, this is a full bodied, firm and dense cabernet. Love the classy and classic nose of blackcurrant/cassis, mineral, gentle eucalyptus and very fine oak trimming. Sturdy stuff, still youthfully tannic yet well balanced. The focus and length are excellent to outstanding, and there is a sense of minerality to boot. Stick it in the cellar, best 2025 to 2030+."

    Vallana Wines

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Red Meat, Veal roasted


    "The 2016 Boca is a total stunner. Deep and fleshy in the glass, the 2016 is full of character. Ideally readers will be able to cellar it for a few years, as it is very young. Sweet tobacco, licorice, black cherry, plum and earthy notes develop with a bit of time in the glass. The 2016 is fabulous. There is just not much else to say. Well, except that it is also a remarkable value in ageworthy wine."

    Bodega Akutain

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "The 2004 Rioja Gran Reserva from Bodegas Akutain is a lovely the elegant side of Rioja Alta fruit, as it offers up a complex and utterly classic bouquet of plums, raspberries, cigar smoke, an impressively complex base of soil tones, cloves and toasted coconut. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and vibrant, with a great core of fruit, impeccable balance, lovely complexity and a very long, bright and classy finish. Just a great bottle of old school Rioja! 2016-2035+."

    Bodegas Valduero

    Castilla y Leon (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Veal roasted


    "Yolanda García Viadero and her family farm 495 acres of bush vines, which they planted in the late 1980s in the town of Gumiel del Mercado, at an elevation around 2,750 feet above sea level. They farm without chemicals and age their reserva-level wines in French oak barrels against the walls of a deep 15th-century limestone cellar in town. This is the García Viaderos' take on modern Ribera del Duero—rather than the radical-traditional style of Goyo, Yolanda’s brother, who split from the family to tend ancient vines and produce fresh field blends without sulfur. Much as I love the work Goyo does and the beauty of the results, I can’t deny the beauty of Yolanda’s 2014. It’s floral and elegant, evolving toward an idealized vision of what tempranillo can be. The wine’s tart red fruit has exciting freshness six years after harvest, offering notes of game and black plum skin, pear-like acidity and clarity. Lovely."

    Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "The vineyard at the top within the centre of Cannubi itself is outstanding: three hectares on sand and limestone soils from a combination of Tortonian and Elvetian epochs. Aged in Slavonian oak vessels, this example shows its open-knit grace with peachy sweetness of fruits, with touches of red berries and mint. Lighter bodied than usual, its naturally refreshing acidity and firm yet ripe tannins are completed by an amazing savoury character with a liquorice finish."

    94 points - Decanter Magazine, March 2021

     

    "The 2017 Barolo Cannubi is another terrific wine from 2017 Barolo Cannubi. Expressive and translucent in the glass, the 2017 is wonderfully expressive from the moment it is first poured. Sweet red cherry, blood orange, mint, spice, chalk and white pepper lend striking aromatic presence. Deceptively medium in body, the 2017 has plenty of grip. It is one of the finest wines I have tasted from Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno."

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    "Made in slightly higher amounts than many of the producer's other estate wines, this is an outstanding value for the quality,—a wildly delicious expression of the grape, region and vintage that is in cohesive harmony. Savory, rocky and textured, it blends 30% of its grapes from neighboring Hellenthal Vineyard, the combination exploding in red tangy fruit."

  9. New Sfursat Fruttaio Ca' Rizzieri DOCG by Aldo Rainoldi 2017

    $599.94

    Aldo Rainoldi

    Italy (Italy), Lombardy (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Pasta, Red Meat


    "Made from air-dried Nebbiolo grapes, the Rainoldi 2017 Sfursat di Valtellina Fruttaio Ca' Rizzieri is only made in the best vintages. This release of approximately 14,000 bottles represents a special selection of fruit sourced from terraced vineyards across the estate, then left to dry for two months in a well-ventilated drying room called the Fruttaio Ca' Rizzieri, at 500 meters above sea level. The wine then ages in barrique for 18 months. You taste the appassimento process with dried berry, plum and wild cherry confit. The dried fruit transitions smoothly into lifted aromas of licorice root, cola and tarry smoke. The experience is pushed forward by the wine's 15% alcoholic content."

  10. New Sassella Vigna degli Apostoli Valtellina Superiore by Aldo Rainoldi 2013

    $659.94

    Aldo Rainoldi

    Italy (Italy), Lombardy (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "An inaugural release of 2,800 bottles, the Rainoldi 2013 Valtellina Superiore Sassella Vigna degli Apostoli is a new cru from this well-known vineyard, sitting at about 300 meters above sea level along the terraced, sandy and rocky banks of the Adda River. Although this is the first vintage made, the vines were planted in the 1950s. This lean-bodied expression of Chiavennasca (the local name for Nebbiolo) greets the nose with elegant tertiary aromas that are deftly woven between some of the dark, crisp berry fruit that distinguishes the bouquet. There is dried cherry and crème de cassis with tarry notes of spice, smoke and crushed stone. The wine proceeds with a compact approach capped by fresh acidity and softly polished tannins. This wine is drinking beautifully in the here and now."

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.
