Red Wine: Bold and Full-Bodied

Red wine is made from red or black grapes with their skins still intact during the fermentation process. The prolonged contact of the grapes' skin with the juice during fermentation gives the wine its alluring red colour and bold flavour, ranging from fruity to earthy. The tannins in the skin make its characteristic astringency, and a perfect pair with rich, flavorful foods.
