  3. New Fontissimo IGT (OWC) by Le Fonti 2014

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat


    "The 2014 Fontissimo is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 10% Sangiovese, but it comes off first and foremost as a wine off the property. Succulent dark cherry, leather and spice are some of the many notes that come alive with time in the glass. Ample, creamy and beautifully layered, the Fontissimo hits all the right notes. The 2014 offers real substance and plenty of character."

    $389.70

    Agricola Punica

    Italy (Italy), Sardinia (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Pasta, Red Meat, Vegetables


    Made exclusively from vines grown on the Barrua Estate, from an exciting blend of 85% Carignano, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot, this wine has lovely complexity and depth. The aromas are deep and rounded with exotic notes of black cherry, wild strawberry, dried herbs and a hint of refined tobacco. The palate is pure and concentrated with layers of raspberry and black cherry fruit followed by savoury, liquorice and black pepper characters and an elegant mineral note on the finish. The tannins are fine and enveloping, balanced by an easing, refreshing acidity.

    "This stylish blend of Carignano and 15% Bordeaux varieties has blackcurrant, tomato leaf, sweet spice and cinnamon aromas and a silky texture. Concentrated without being too heavy. Finely integrated tannins. Classy.  Drinking Window 2020 - 2030.”

  5. New Poggio di Guardia IGT Toscana by Poggio di Guardia 2016

    $479.70

    Poggio di Guardia

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat


    "At the pinnacle of the local red blend food chain at Poggio di Guardia is this merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon based wine made with the use of rebo housed in Terracotta Orcio amphora. Siena used this garrison high point to warn of enemy sightings during the Florentine wars of the Middle Ages and today it houses some of Tuscany's most fascinating vineyards. Oenologist Stefano di Blasi and Gabbiano's Federico Cerelli have transformed these Radda in Chianti blocks into some of the (Chianti Classico) territory's great IGT cru sites. Rebo was created in 1948 by Rebo Rigotti at the San Michele all'Adige research center in Trentino and why it was planted in Chianti Classico is not quite certain. Not dried appassimento style but instead fortified in amphora there are glycerin and dried fruit notes of great tang to support what the Bordeaux grapes just seem to want and need. More ripeness, consistent funk and great grip are hallmarks of 2016 and spice is simply everywhere. The changes of tense, chords and tempo are so unique to this blend and the place. You just have to try it to believe."

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.
