  1. $119.70

    Purato

    Italy (Italy), Sicily (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "The name Siccari comes from the Sicilian dialect for “seccare” , which translates as “to dry” in the context of foods, something that is very much a part of Sicilian culture. We chose this name as an indicator of the style, since a proportion of the grapes are sun-dried before vinification. Creating a red wine using appassimento brings a whole new dimension to a wine - Siccari has a rich and complex structure, with very soft berryish fruits and a touch of spice. Incredibly characterful, it has layer upon layer of intense and diverse fruit flavours and a very long finish."

    Crimson with dark purple hints. Floral nose of peony with raspberry and blackberry. Light concentration on the palate with supple tannins. Lovely fruit, and a floral presence nicely supported by freshness. A Cahors made in a crowd-pleasing style.

  3. $239.40

    Matsu

    Spain (Spain), Toro (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Picaro means 'rogue' or 'rascal', and this rapscallion of a wine is a youthful interpretation of the Toro region's style. The grapes come from mature vines of over 50 years of age, but the wine spends only three months in oak, preserving their natural fruit profile. Vivid crimson-purple in the glass. Aromas are of ripe blackberries and raspberries, with subtle hints of fresh cocoa. The palate is bold yet supple, with ripe tannins and a mineral grip. Enjoy on its own or with boldly flavoured pasta dishes or spicy meat skewers.

    Bodega Salentein

    Argentina (Argentina), Mendoza (Argentina)

    12 x 750ml

    Pasta, Red Meat


    "Fresh, enticing black and blue fruit with hints of roasted spices and violets. Hints of fresh herbs. Juicy and full of flesh in the middle, coated by a nicely firm tannin backbone. Appetizing! Drink now."

  5. $179.70

    Château de Gaudou

    Cahors (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Duck breast, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "Fermented and aged in an oval-shaped tank, this wine is very young, packed with black fruits and still dominated by tannins. A dense expression of Malbec from old vines, it has a spicy character."

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.
