    Aldo Rainoldi

    6 x 750 ml

    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.

    Tenuta Cucco

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "This red combines macerated cherry, strawberry, floral, licorice and sweet spice aromas and flavors with a civilized, well-integrated matrix of tannins. Tense and lively, with mineral and tobacco elements emerging on the long aftertaste."

    93 Points - Wine Spectator, Oct 2019

     

    "Serralunga d'Alba. Pale garnet. Vital, pure, revitalizing nose with understated fruit but real perfume...great structure and excitement. Beautifully readable. Tannins subordinate to fruit." - Jancis Robinson MW, Dec 2018

  4. $444.00

    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."

    Punset

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    Blue flower, underbrush and wild herb aromas mix with a whiff of tobacco. Racy and linear, the palate offers sour cherry, star anise and a hint of rusted iron alongside taut, close-grained tannins that leave a drying finish.

    Giovanni Manzone

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "Manzone's 2015 Barolo Castelletto is truly impressive. Bold, rich and pulsing with energy, the 2015 captures all the vibrancy that makes Barolos from Castelletto so distinctive, with an extra touch of mid-palate sweetness. If that sounds appealing, well, it is. Rose petal, bright red berry fruit, mint, chalk and wild flowers all run through this wonderfully nuanced, translucent Barolo. There is so much to like here. What a pretty wine this is."

  7. $1,074.00

    Scarpa

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Red Meat


    Direct from the Scarpa's cellar. Splendid garnet red. Refined bouquet of violets, dried rose petals and licorice, tobacco and balsamic notes with hints of clove that follow through on the palate. Great structure, very long finish. > Learn More

  8. $1,794.00

    Scarpa

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Red Meat, Vegetables


    Ruby colour with garnet red reflections. Fine and fruity notes of berries, weathered roses. Rich and strong and yet very elegant. A longer aging improves the bouquet. Very characteristic with a long, full-bodied finish.

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.
