    Pico Maccario

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml


    Intense ruby red colour. Charming bouquet, with a wide range of aromas: cherry, plum, and red berries. On the palate, it is complex with firm structure and a long, harmonious finish.

     

    "The aromatic 2017 Barbera d'Asti Lavignone, a lovely example of Barbera from that vintage, proves approachable and juicy with a pleasant, fresh finish."

    Vallana Wines

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "The NV Lot 2006 Campi Raudii Library Release has naturally lost some of the fruit intensity seen in this wine when it is younger, and yet it has also retained quite a bit of depth. Orange peel, tobacco, star anise and a host of more exotic floral notes are all found. Aromatically beguiling and constantly changing in the glass, the 2006 has a lot to say. Even with all of its depth, the Campi Raudii has that translucent feel that makes the best wines from Alto Piemonte so compelling. Drink 2018 - 2026"

    The nose offers a complexity of aromas beautifully intermingled: prune, mocha, cherries, truffle, and vanilla plus a touch of spice. To taste, it reaches all corners of your mouth with a medium to full body, velvety smooth tannins, and clean, balanced acidity. Finishes with exceptional length and depth of flavour. Robust and austere, this wine may be enjoyed now or stored for years to come.

    Scarpa

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    The bouquet is rich, and elegant, with powerful strawberry laced cherry fruit supported by deft greenish accents and pleasant nutmeg spice. On the palate it's full and rich with powerful berry fruit laced with yellow peach sweetness and supported by deft sour strawberry acidity, while the tannins are quite young, with a slight burr and very smooth, and flow into a long clean warm finish. Just coming into its own. > Learn More

    "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."

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    3 x 750 ml

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


    "Enticingly fragrant, this gorgeous wine opens with classic Nebbiolo aromas of woodland berry, wild rose, forest floor, pipe tobacco, dark spice and a balsamic whiff of menthol. Reflecting the nose, the delicious, structured palate delivers dried cherry, raspberry compote, truffle, star anise and a note of crushed mint. Firm but noble tannins provide the framework and bestow impressive aging potential."

    Bruno Giacosa

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Risotto


    "The balance of cherry, strawberry and sweet spice flavors and dense, dusty tannins leaves a divide that needs time to bridge. Offers the requisite amount of fruit, and the finish persists, with sweetness to offset the tannins. Firm, dense and long, gaining floral notes and a more ethereal profile with air. Best from 2022 through 2040."

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.
