  1. $237.00

    Cave Spring Cellars

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Ham, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Pelmeni Dumplings, Red Meat, Risotto, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    This wine is burgundy in colour with garnet hues to the edge. On the nose, spicy notes of cloves and cinnamon along with penetrating red berry fruit are at the forefront, with earthy undertones in behind. The palate combines bright raspberry and Bing cherry fruit, crisp but well-integrated acidity and great intensity and persistence of flavour throughout. There is a definite gaminess and a hint of white pepper that lingers very long on the finish. All in all, this cooler vintage has delivered a classically-structured Pinot of considerable complexity. > Learn More

    It has an intense purple colour on the glass. On the nose, it delivers pronounced notes of ripe dark fruit, hints of spices and some floral notes. The mouth is juicy, with no sharp edges, soft tannins and a really nice acidity. It is a very easy-drinking and uncomplicated Primitivo.

    Typical aromas of ripe fruit, fruit preserve and cherry are immediately perceived on first olfactory examination.

    Galardi

    Campania (Italy), Italy (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Risotto, Vegetables


    "Made from Piedirosso grapes and matured in new-wood barriques. The wine has a bright, ruby color and a broad bouquet with notes of Marasca cherry, lavender, myrtle and violet together with a fresh, vegetal nuance. The saline and taut mouthfeel is pleasing, harmonious, fresh and rewarding with soft and totally integrated tannins and an excellently persistent aftertaste."
    95 points - Daniele Cernilli, Doctor Wine, Sept 2019
    "This is an exciting red with a profusion of elderberries, blackberries, tea leaves and tar and licorice. It’s full-bodied and stacked in layers of structured tannins, the acidity flitting and swerving effortlessly through the agile dark fruit, helping the finish to spread out in long, complex bands of floral perfumes."

    Bruno Rocca

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750ml

    Pasta, Red Meat, Risotto, Roasted Vegetables


    "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.
