    Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    12

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


    This is from younger vines in Barolo, and it’s aged in large Slavonian oak casks. This shows great precision and purity, with raspberry and cranberry fruit, some tannic crunch and bright acidity. This has a lovely purity to it, showing a lot of fruit but also great structure and focus. Benchmark Nebbiolo, with good concentration for a Langhe, and elegance and prettiness coupled with acid and tannin presence. Carries its alcohol very well.

    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"

    Torracci del Piantavigna

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Duck breast, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Veal roasted


    "The Torraccia del Piantavigna 2013 Ghemme is a blend of 90% Nebbiolo and 10% Vespolina. The wine presents a very beautiful bouquet with subtle floral aromas behind dried cherry and blackberry. The flavor profile is tart and sour, reflecting the cool vintage and the slightly evolved nature of the wine. You might notice a hint of crushed white pepper on the finish."

  4. New Barbaresco Teorema by Azienda Agricola Molino 2016 Barbaresco Teorema by Azienda Agricola Molino 2016

    $341.94

    Azienda Agricola Molino

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "A big and bold mouthful of wine, very ripe and concentrated, with abundant extract, thick and chewy, and palate-coating flavour. It leans to the more modern, fruitier style of nebbiolo, though oak flavour is not excessive, just adding a little dark chocolate sheen on the finish. This powerful wine is not yet at peak, and would need another 2-3 years minimum to reach its stride, or cellar into the early '30s without concern. I'd like to see a little more nuance detail and complexity emerge."

    Aldo Rainoldi

    Italy (Italy), Lombardy (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    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.

    Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "This is beautiful. It’s concentrated at the same time as being bright and fresh, with a crunchy raspberry edge to the floral cherry fruit. There’s an almost perfect balance between the just-ripe, pure red fruit character and the spice and herb savouriness, with firm, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity providing the structural foil. This is a pleasure to drink now, but you feel its best years are ahead of it. And many of them. The alcohol is high, but there’s no sense of over-ripeness, and a little sweetness from the alcohol helps melt the tannins a little."

    Gattera is a single vineyard in La Morra. The Gattera Barolo is traditionally made in large oak casks to give it light oak and showcase the Nebbiolo grape. Hints of red fruit, especially cherries, balsamic scents and notes of rose. Very delicate. The tannins are present but well balanced. Elegant and classy. > Learn More

    "The 2012 Barbaresco Rabajà is incredibly tight today. Then again, it was just bottled. Firm, incisive tannins support a core of vibrant fruit in a powerful, pulsating wine built on the pure energy that is the signature of these poor white soils. Hints of leather, savory herbs, mint and smoke add nuance on the finish. Today, the 2012 is shaping up to be more of a delicate vintage for the Rabajà. Although it is early for both years, I have a slight preference for the 2012 over the 2011."

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.
