    Domaine de Dionysos

    France (France), Southern Rhône (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    "The 2015 'La Devèze' opens to fresh inviting aromas and flavors of raspberries, spiced plum, pepper, black olives all taking shape. On the palate this is medium-bodied and well balanced,with lovely acidity at its core, providing a lovely fresh character to the fruit as it enters the juicy finish. This is already a pleasure to drink, however it should also continue to add even more appeal with some short-term cellaring."

    Vineland Estates Winery

    Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    6 x 750 ml


    2012 is the vintage that keeps on giving. Perfect growing conditions gave life to a bounty of fully matured grapes profoundly anchored to the soil that bore them. Our treasured Bo-Teek vineyard calls out from every glass of this Elevation Cabernet with a sound that stirs our soul and draws us near to the nuanced depths of dark berries, premium chocolate, lightly roasted coffee and cigar box. A full structure of meticulously resolved tannins interlaced with a bright acidity gives this wine a current heft plus a promise for a great future. Cradle a splash of this wonderful vintage in your glass and instantly fall in love. > Learn More

    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

  6. $503.40

    Donatella Cinelli Colombini

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    Intense and brilliant ruby red. This wine proves its richness through the slow movement of the wine rotating in the glass. Fine, complex, full of hints of ripe red fruits, and spices that come from the barrel ageing period. Of great structure, full, harmonious, and long lasting.Serve with noble meats (such as the fiorentina steak) and aged cheeses. Well matched also with Indian and Chinese spicy and tasty dishes.

    "Translated as "the dragon and the 8 doves," the 2015 Il Drago e le 8 Colombe is an IGT Toscana blend of 60% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 20% Sagrantino. The eight doves refer to the all-female staff at the Donatella Cinelli Colombini winery, and the dragon is Donatella's husband Carlo Gardini. I taste the hearty Sagrantino grape first both in terms the boldness of the bouquet and that slight tannic crunch you get in the mouth. The Merlot serves to soften it up, and the Sangiovese adds freshness and the pretty berry aromas that define the bouquet. This Tuscan red has the heft and substance to pair with grilled steak."

    Quinta da Muradella

    Monterrei (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Duck breast, Herring, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted


    "Lurid, violet color. Lively, mineral-tinged aromas of cherry, black raspberry and candied flowers pick up a suggestion of incense as the wine stretches out. Sweet and seamless in the mouth, offering intense cherry liqueur, dark berry and spicecake flavors and a suave violet pastille accent. Finishes silky, floral and impressively long, with fine-grained tannins adding shape and gentle grip. (Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, followed by 10 months in a stainless steel tank.)"(JR)

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.
