  1. $659.94

    Maison Tardieu Laurent

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Red Meat, Veal roasted


    "Darker, savory inflections of charred earth, fur and ore mingle into jammy black cherry and cassis in this bold, rugged Syrah. It's moderately full in body but penetrating and densely anchored on the palate. Soft, welcoming tannins make it approachable already, but it's a wine that's likely to develop it's gamy, earthen intensities further with age."

    95 Points / Cellar Selection - Anna Lee C. Iijima, Wine Enthusiast, March 2021

  2. New Barolo Fossati DOCG by Enzo Boglietti 2016 Barolo Fossati DOCG by Enzo Boglietti 2016

    $779.94

    Enzo Boglietti

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Pasta


    "The 2016 Barolo Fossati is laced with red fruit, orange zest, cedar, cinnamon, dried autumn leaves and sweet pipe tobacco, along with the nervous tannins that are such a Fossati signature. In the glass, the 2016 is translucent and a bit edgy, but it all works. This is such an attractive and expressive wine that balances the depth that has always been typical of these wines with notable site expression."

    94 Points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, October 2020

     

    "Drawing its fruit from old vines in La Morra, the Enzo Boglietti 2016 Barolo Fossati offers a smooth, silky and accessible personality. This wine should probably be accessible with another five years or more of aging. This vineyard site has silty soils, and these conditions work to create complexity and soft dimension in the wine. Red cherry, dried raspberry, blood orange, licorice and smoke emerge from the bouquet."

    94 Points - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, July 2020

     

    "Perfumed, this red exhibits pure flavors of cherry, raspberry and rose, shaded by mineral and tobacco. It's succulent and silky, until the firm tannins sweep in on the savory finish. Graceful, yet packs a punch."

  3. New Barolo Brunate DOCG by Enzo Boglietti 2016 Barolo Brunate DOCG by Enzo Boglietti 2016

    $869.94

    Enzo Boglietti

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Pasta


    "The Brunate cru has a mix of soils with some heavier limestone clay that adds extra power and structure to the wines that come from this site. The Enzo Boglietti 2016 Barolo Brunate opens to a garnet appearance with beautifully presented aromas of wild berry, forest floor, licorice and spent ember. The wine achieves a beautiful sense of unity with so many detailed aromas balanced over the slender texture and firm tannins. A mere 2,300 bottles were released, and this wine won't be fully accessible until 10 years after the harvest."

    95 Points - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, July 2020

     

    "A dense, polished young Barolo with a solid core of dried cherries, hazelnuts, meat and roses. It’s full-bodied and tight, dense and long. Give it two or three years to show what it’s got."

    95 Points - James Suckling, Aug 2020

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.
