What Are the Different Types of Red Wine?
For many people, the question “what are the different types of wine” only has two
answers, white wine and red wine. The fact, however, is these two wine types can be
further classified into several other types. Yes, the market also houses different types of
white wine and red wine. This article will inform you about the most talked about red wine
Most red wines have their origin in France; however, Italy is also known for being the birth
place of a number of famous red wines. It is impossible to mention all the types of red wine
in a single article. Thus, here, we have discussed only about three most loved variants
available on the market.
Barbera: This wine comes from the Piedmont area of Italy and is known for its acidic
nature. The other prominent features of the wine include its low tannin level and volatile
nature. The most common application of Barbera is as blending wine. Barbera is known for
possessing strong flavors of black cherry and plum fruit and enjoys maximum popularity in
California. You can serve this yummy red wine with a wide variety of dishes.
Cabernet sauvignon: Experts refer to cabernet sauvignon as “The King” due to its
unmatched taste and quality. Cabernet sauvignon originated in France and is one of the
most revered wine varieties of the world. This wine type gets its name from one of the
grape varieties used for making it. The other ingredients of this wine type are Merlot and
Cabernet Franc; all these when mixed together gives the wine an attractive purple color.
The Cabernets of highest quality are usually 15 years or more of age. They carry a spicy
whiff and a distinct black current flavor.
Malbec: This is often the most loved wine type for people who are drinking wine for several
years. Malbec grapes are grown mostly in the southwestern territories of France and
Cohors. However, these grapes are also cultivated in some parts of Argentina. The only
difference between the Malbecs grown in France and Argentina is that the ones grown in
the South American country contain low levels of tannin and are softer. These qualities
make wine made from Argentinean Malbecs more appropriate for blending. Malbec wine
boasts a dark color and is extremely juicy. It contains flavors of chocolate, raspberry and
plum and tastes best when consumed with finely roasted meat.
