Red Semi-Dry Wine - A Classic for All Times
The classification of wines into dry, semi-dry, semi-sweet, and sweet is based on the amount of sugar contained in the final product. Red semi-dry wine has a sugar content between 5 and 25 grams per liter, making it a perfect choice for those who want a wine that's not too sweet or too dry. It is a great starting point for wine beginners as it highlights all the notes of taste and aroma.
The sugar content of wine is regulated in the production process. Sugar content can also be controlled during ripening and harvesting. Grapes for semi-dry wine are often harvested at the beginning of October, which causes the grape bunches to become slightly dried and give the wine its unique flavor.
