RED WINE

“Dry” terminology says that red wine is a drink made from dark grape varieties using a special technology that promotes the transfer of anthocyanins from the skin to the wort. By the way, it is wrong to believe that only the color of the grapes sets the shade of the final product. The process of “coloring” is a bit more complicated: the wort is infused with crushed grape seeds (pulp), where coloring pigments and tannins stand out during the fermentation process. This technology allows you to get a drink of various shades and astringency.

All this is true, but is it really necessary to talk about the king of wines, which can truly be considered red wines? Red wine wants to sing tirelessly, its many-sided tastes and shades are spinning the heads of humanity for many centuries. From time immemorial, this drink occupied dominant positions at various feasts and festivals, and its medicinal properties were known long before laboratory tests.

Today there are about 50 different types of red wines, differing in taste, color and aroma. Each wine region produces its own red wine, which is considered the hallmark of production. Most of the names are widely known: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco and Malbec, Tempranillo and Syrah, Shiraz, Sangiovese, Grenache, Bordeaux, and Sagrantino. But, despite all the variety of wines produced, French Bordeaux and Burgundy wines remain the best.

If it takes a lot of time and knowledge to comprehend tasting science, then to properly serve red wine, it’s enough to remember a few simple rules: the serving temperature varies from 15 to 18 degrees (strong wines should be served at room temperature, and dessert ones should be better cooled) only a third, table wines are recommended to be served at the dinner table and mainly for meat.

But only to meat? Not at all, although the rule “red wine to dark meat” still works.

First, let’s deal with the prohibitions:

salads with vinegar dressing, can completely spoil the taste of the drink;
nuts “clog” the taste buds and do not allow you to feel the full diversity of taste;
smoking. Tobacco smoke can spoil the impression of even good wine.
Ideal dishes for red wine can be safely considered pies, grilled meat and any dark meat (including game), most cheeses and fruits. But you are free to experiment and create your own traditions of drinking red wine. The only unshakable rule is compliance with the measure.
