  1. New Collezione Oro Chianti Riserva by Piccini 2018

    $263.88

    Tenute Piccini

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    A taste of Tuscan Gold!   Only the finest Sangiovese and Cabernet grapes, selected during harvest, are destined for Piccini Chianti Riserva “Collezione Oro”.  Having reached the ideal point of ripeness, the grapes are processed separately, at controlled temperature, undergoing a long maceration. 

    An intense and persistent fruity bouquet with the flavour developing subtle notes of vanilla in the end. Warm palate with soft tannins, "Collezione Oro" opens in velvety shades, rich in structure, with a long aftertaste. Serve with roasts, pasta with spicy sauce or barbecue.

    Tagaro

    Italy (Italy), Puglia (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Vegetables


    The Seicaselle is an gorgeous example of Italian expertise in terms of viticulture.  This particularly elegant, refined wine is made exclusively from Negroamaro grapes from Puglia, specifically Salento,  a region which produces strong aromatic wines.  

    The ruby red wine's full body is pleasantly carried by red fruits mixed with spiced notes.  It is an ideal wine for enjoying beautiful pieces of red meat.

    Farnese

    Abruzzo (Italy), Italy (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Pasta, Red Meat


    Red ruby with garnet highlights. Intense and persistent on the nose and palate.  Spicy aromas with hints of chocolate and tar that compliment and not sominate its copious fruit. Good structure, good tannins and well-balanced.

    Megalomaniac

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    "Lush yet linear, powerful but not at all fat, this wine is all about great tension, dignity and understated complexity. Just a magnetic red that keeps you swirling and coming back to it again and again. Try it. You’ll see."

    96 Points - Carolyn Evans Hammond, The Toronto Star, November 2019

     

    "18 months in French oak. Lovely nose, combining lavender, spice and dried herbs with berry fruit and some gravel and spice. The palate has some tannic bite and grippy structure, but also fresh fruit with nice black cherry, raspberry and red cherry notes. It’s fresh, but also has some fruit sweetness. Real finesse here, with structure that suggests this could age well over the next decade."

    Bodegas Castro Ventosa

    Bierzo (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Soft Cheese


    "The 2018 Valtuille Villegas had not been produced since 2015 and there is a big jump in precision and freshness: it's not just three years, it's three years of fine-tuning the work in the vineyards and winery. It fermented in a 3,000-liter oak vat with 100% full clusters and matured in two 225-liter oak barrels and one 500-liter oak barrel. This is perfumed and gravitates more toward Burgundy; it's elegant and long, with "only" 12.8% alcohol. It has very polished tannins and the inherent elegance of the sandy soils. It's perhaps lighter and doesn't have the complexity of the Cepas Centenarias, but it's really impressive. A Villegas of finesse. 1,300 bottles were filled in May 2020."

    Walter Hansel

    Russian River Valley (USA), USA (USA)

    6 x 750 ml

    Duck breast


    "Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2018 Pinot Noir Cuvée Alyce opens slowly to alluring aromas of smoked cranberries, red cherries and black raspberries laced with licorice, bergamot and dried lavender. The palate is medium-bodied and super silky with addicting freshness, absolutely packed with layered, detailed flavors, and it finishes very long and elegant. Wow! 1,012 cases produced."

  7. New Brunello di Montalcino DOCG by Voliero 2016

    $659.94

    Voliero

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    "The 2016 Brunello was aged for 30 months in Slavonian and French oak barrels. Perfumed and lifted with fresh raspberry fruit, roses, sweet herbs, and dusty earth, with a delicate concentration of color, the palate is medium-bodied, with refined tannins and notes of fresh red cherry, orange zest, and clove. This is a beautifully elegant expression and lovely work by Andrea Cortonesi that I look forward to revisiting over the next 15 years."

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "Amazing aromas of decadent fruit, spice and meat. Mushrooms, too. Full body and ripe, caressing tannins that fan out on the palate. Goes on for minutes. From organically grown grapes."

    Cavallotto

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    3 x 750 ml

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


    "Perfumed, revealing rose, strawberry, cherry, hay and eucalyptus aromas and flavors, with a mineral underpinning and a lean, taut frame that keeps this red focused through the long aftertaste. Beginning to open up aromatically, but the tannins indicate there's no rush to drink this. Drink now through 2036."

    96 points - Wine Spectator, April 2021

     

    "Pressed rose, sunbaked earth, aromatic herb, new leather, balsamic notes and a whiff of game are just some of the aromas you'll find on this multifaceted red. The full-bodied palate boasts structure and personality, delivering dried Marasca cherry, blood orange, star anise and tobacco set against a backbone of firm noble tannins."

    Henri Magnien

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750ml

    Duck breast


    "Cazetiers is effectively Charles Magnien’s home vineyard and he knows it intimately. Since he has a whole hectare and a half, I am delighted that he makes great wine here from vines that average 65 years old. Beautifully ripe yet with a joyous balance, this absolutely fills the mouth while resolutely insisting on its mineral aftertaste."

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.
