The obvious characteristic of red wine is the color. There are various shades of red wine and as it ages, it turns to brown. There are a wide range of flavors available with red wine.
The formation of red wine is done by squashing the juice of grapes with the skins and seeds. This results in imparting tannins to the wine which is a significant characteristic of a red wine. Tannins are chemical elements that lend ageability to a wine along with structure. You will enjoy tannic wines after some years when it ages as the tannins will soften over time and it will taste better.
There is a difference between red wine and white wine in the production process and also in choosing the grapes for production.
