Red Wines from around the world. There are many red wine varieties.
Red wine is a type of wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The actual colour of the wine can range from intense violet, typical of young wines, through to brick red for mature wines and brown for older red wines. The juice from most purple grapes is greenish-white, the red colour coming from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) present in the skin of the grape; exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red-coloured juice. Much of the red-wine production process therefore involves extraction of colour and flavour components from the grape skin. (Wikipedia)
