The sugar content of wine is regulated in the production process. But not only that. Sugar content can also be controlled during ripening and harvesting. In ancient Rome, the grapes for semi-dry wine were harvested after frost. Nowadays this method is also actively used: the grapes are harvested at the beginning of October. The grape bunches become different in texture - the berries are slightly dried.
A semi-dry red wine is made using the classical method - fermentation. It is necessarily aged in oak barrels or other containers. Aging is a fundamental step in the production of semi-dry wine.
The strength of red semi-dry wine is usually 9-14%. Semi-dry varieties in small quantities are good for health. The drink improves circulation, improves sleep, and slows down aging.
The price of red semi-dry wine is varied: you can find both budget and expensive option - collectible wine of long aging.
