Red Wines reveal their richness when served at cooler room temperatures of 55° to 65°F (13° to 18°C). When it's warm inside or out, you can place the bottle in the refrigerator for a short time, but don’t let the wine get too cool- cold red wines can taste excessively tart.
The Importance of using a proper glass and selecting proper stemware.
In recent study a Japanese research group showed how different glass shapes affected the density and position of vapors at the openings of different glasses.
Why do vapors matter? Well, they carry aromas or (aromatic compounds) into your nose. Aromatic compounds are responsible for producing the vast majority of flavours in wine.
White wines are typically served in smaller styled glasses. Smaller glasses:
- Preserve floral aromas
- Maintain cooler temperature
- Express more acidity in wine
- Delivers more aromas (even at cooler temperatures) due to proximity to nose
These types of stemware are ideal full-bodied Red Wines like Burgundy, Cabernet Sauvignon and other hearty wines. Wines which are better suited using this larger styled glassware.
