    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.

    "They’ve reduced the oak aging over the years.  It shows.  Graceful, elegant, firm--not aggressive--tannins.  Alluring!"

    95 points - Michael Apstein, Wine Review Online, Feb 2018

    "Aromas of rose petals and ripe strawberries follow through to a full body. Layered and chewy with ripe tannins and a flavorful and intense finish. Serious and structured."

    Donatella Cinelli Colombini

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "I love the way this wine has absorbed and reflects the sunny and warm personality of its maker, the brilliant Donatella Cinelli Colombini. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Prime Donne has her spirit and her vision, and I recognize that as I taste through these samples. Her distinctive winemaking mark is achieved with botte and tonneaux aging, and her style is definitely fuller and more generous than most. It's a modern Brunello, if you care to categorize wines in this way. Only 6,660 bottles were produced. The vineyards are exposed to wider horizons that make for more light hours each day (from dawn to sunset) of the growing cycle. I'm on team Donatella."

    95 points - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, Feb 2018

    "Fragrant and elegant, this offers lovely scents of pressed blue flower and an earthy whiff of new leather. The savory refined palate delivers ripe red cherry, cranberry, star anise, orange zest and crushed herb alongside polished, fine-grained tannins. It's nicely balanced, with bright acidity."

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.
