Red Wine

Spanish red wine, called "Vino Tinto" in Spanish, is one of the best red wines in the world. The prerequisites for producing a first-class red wine are nutrient-rich soils, plenty of sunlight, and the Mediterranean climate.

In ancient times already red wine was said to have healing effects against cardiovascular problems.
This view persists in people's minds to this day.

Infos about Spanish red wine

What makes red wine red

The red wine gets its bright color from its production process, which differs from the production of white wine. In the mash fermentation, the grape juice is fermented together with the peel of the berries. The pigments in the bowl dissolve, giving the red wine its strong color. Tannins and other ingredients also get into the white wine.
 

Degree of maturity of the red wine

The maturation or aging period is an important criterion when choosing a wine: A young and rather light wine is produced without aging in the barrel or with a maximum of six months in the barrel. Its taste is fruity, soft and fresh. Many young red wines, in spanish vino joven, are drunk very cold.

The Crianza is a young wine with a minimum aging period of 2 years, of which at least twelve months in barrel. A Reserva is aged for at least 36 months, of which twelve months in so-called barrique barrels. The Gran Reserva is aged for at least 60 months until it develops its full aroma.
 

The right temperature to enjoy

Many believe that the red wine is enjoyed at room temperature.
This is not quite correct. Certain flavorings develop better at higher temperatures, but they should not exceed 20 ° C.
A good Reserva should be enjoyed at 15 ° C to 18 ° C, light and fruity red wines with a low tannin content are good to drink at 10 ° C to 13 ° C.
