    Erik Banti

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    "This has a very intense nose with blackcurrant reduction, licorice, lavender extract and a touch of resin. But there’s definitely freshness, in the form of citrus and black pepper. Full body, dense tannins, tons of blue fruit and acidity that pulls this through to a chewy finish."

    Oregon (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Pasta, Red Meat, Risotto, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    Horseshoes & Handgrenades is fruit-driven, full-bodied complex red blend sourced from Southern Oregon and Red Mountain Washington.  The rich, ripe, voluptuous fruit comes from Oregon Syrah with just enough Washington Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to give it complexity and structure.  Think cherry pits and leather whips!

    Il Palazzino

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    "The 2015 Stagi, 100% Colorino, is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Ample and unctuous on the palate, with tremendous textural depth, the 2015 delivers serious fruit intensity while avoiding the hard tannins that plague many other Colorinos. Hints of sage, lavender, mint and spice notes round out this succulent, hugely delicious Tuscan wine."

    Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Risotto, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    "Vineyard dust, violet and wild raspberry aromas mingle with notes of dark culinary spices on this fragrant red. Juicy red cherry, clove, licorice and orange zest aromas are framed in bright acidity, while elegant, taut tannins provide the backbone."

    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."

    La Colombina

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "La Colombina's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a fleshy and complete expression of Sangiovese that shows staying power and balanced intensity. This wine would pair perfectly next to grilled meats or homemade pasta with game sauce (like wild boar or rabbit). I like the smooth intensity displayed by this wine as it glides cleanly over the palate."

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "Gorgeous, plush Brunello flavors without hard tannins.  Good introduction to the beauty of Brunello.  A candidate for wine of the vintage."

    Antinori

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    1 x 750 ml

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


    "The 2016 Tignanello is flat out stunning. Dark, dense and resonant, the 2016 is a wonderfully complete wine that will provide readers with decades of pure drinking pleasure. The 2016 is especially dark and brooding, and yet the tannins are incredibly polished to the point of being perceptible. In the glass, the 2016 is complete and regal, perhaps because of the super-classic blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The pedigree of the vintage comes through in the wine's extraordinary balance and total sense of finesse. I don't think there is another wine anywhere in the world made entirely from estate fruit that can match Tignanello for quality, consistency and value within its peer group of top-flight reds."

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.
