RED WINE

Red wine is known since antiquity as a main beverage. Among other things, he was already 400 BC. prescribed by Hippocrates in disorders of the cardiovascular system. The oldest reference for the production of wine is considered an eight-thousand-year old press plant near Damascus. Other signs originate (5th millennium BC.) from Iran and Mesopotamia. Even in Christianity the red wine had very early a special meaning: To Eucharist he was drunk as a symbol of the "blood of Christ."

Red wine is usually formed by first the mash is fermented for a certain time. In this 2-30 days long conducted maceration, a more or less large proportion of the dyes contained in the shells (anthocyanins) dissolves in alcohol. A few varieties contain the necessary dyes already from the outset in their juice. These are therefore also gladly taken Cuvee to impart other red varieties a deeper shade of red.

Besides the dyes are also tannins and aromatic substances in the grape skins. This included a total of more ingredients in reds than whites. For a harmonious bouquet therefore the ripening period of red wine is longer than that of white wine. Therefore, very young, very tannic red wines often seem even more harsh and closed.

Tannin is the substance which may make red wines bitter and leaves in the mouth a furry, astringent feeling. The right amount can work wonders for the texture and taste of the wine. Tannins and acid also have the positive characteristic to have a preservative effect, making the wines with a high content of one or both substances in the bottle for many years' drinkable.
