  1. New Douro Reserva Tinto by Colinas do Douro 2016

    $299.40

    Colinas do Douro

    Douro (Portugal), Portugal (Portugal)

    12 x 750 ml


    "This is a rich wine, but its great fruit is balanced with intense acidity that comes from the relatively cool, high-altitude vineyards. These two elements work well together, giving a sophisticated, rich wine that could benefit from another two years' aging. Drink from 2020."

    Luigi Righetti

    Italy (Italy), Veneto (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    This is a well-balanced Amarone that still exhibits much of the dark fruit flavours, earth and meaty components expected of this DOC. Aromas of black cherry and prunes joined by beefy and earthy aromas. Moves along the palate nicely with a mix of dark and dried fruit with some meatiness on the finish. Elegant but exhibiting good concentration. You will not find many wines at this price and quality. > Learn More

  3. $268.80

    Château Des Charmes

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    6 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    Our flagship red wine, Equuleus is a classically styled blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot. But we don't make it every year. To be considered an "Equuleus year" each of the three grape varieties must have achieved at least 23.5º Brix at harvest. 2010 was considered one of Niagara's greatest vintages and our Equuleus is a testament to that belief. Aged for one year in French Tronçais and Allier oak barrels, this wine is rich and complex with flavours of cassis and dark chocolate. Equuleus is ready to drink now, but will continue to develop in the bottle for at least another 5-10 years. > Learn More

  4. $539.40

    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."

  5. $319.00

    Domaine du Pégau

    France (France), Southern Rhône (France)

    1 x 1500 ml

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


    "A throwback style and proud of it, with warm chestnut and bay leaf notes taking the lead, followed quickly by worn leather and smoldering tobacco accents. The core of dark currant, warmed cherry and mulled blackberry lies in reserve for now, while the finish lets singed iron and brick dust details hold sway. Just wait for everything to pull together in the cellar. Best from 2020 through 2032."

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.
