The colour scale for red wines ranges from purple to ruby, garnet or orange-red (with intermediate shades). In general, purple is the characteristic colour of a young wine; as the wine gradually ages, it loses some of its red to become more brick-coloured. All this is equally joined by the bouquets and flavours the wine develops through ageing in barrels. Wines are best enjoyed and appreciated by paying careful attention to the serving temperature: depending on the ageing period, the serving temperature ranges from 16 °C for a young red wine through to 20 °C for a well-aged wine.
