Practical matters: The right temperature

  • Take any red and white wine;
  • Pour two ½ glasses of each;
  • Cover all four of them with plastic wrap to keep in the wine’s bouquet;
  • Put a glass of red and a glass of white in the refrigerator for ½ hour;
  • Let the remaining two glasses of red and white wine stand at room temperature;
  • Take off the plastic wrap and compare the two pairs, first the whites then the reds.
  • Now notice how much more smell or flavor (and less acid and tannin) the wines standing at room temperature seem to have.
