    Giorgio Odero is a barrique aged Pinot Nero from a careful selection of low yielding mature vines.  In the glass, the wine is ruby red with garnet highlights.  It is rich and elegant with intense aromas of wild red berries, spice and notes of Seville orange.  The expressive palate is fresh and fruity.  Cherry, vanilla and orange zest are balanced by elegant tannins and a balsamic acidity. A beautiful wine for ageing.

  5. 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."

  6. 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.
