The Best Type of Red Wine


The Top TenXW

1French Bordeaux

Certainly Bordeaux are the best red wines.

There are lots of different kind of Bordeaux from 4$ to thousands...

From Château XYZ to Petrus.

Great great so great wines.

But some other Countries now are also using French grapes and are also producing very good red wine: California, Chili, Australia, South-Africa and of course Spain.

The French wines are so numerous, diversified, that is impossible to make a choice even a list.
The problem they are not known as they should, French have in that poor marketing behavior.
That's a pity. - AldoMac

2Spanish Rioja

Definitively better than disgusting and acid Italian wines.

Yes, a very delicious Spanish red wine.

3Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon

It should say any Cabernet Sauvingnon (I dont drink but I've had "experience" with this wine). - fireinside96

Cabernet Sauvignon is a French origin grape and Chilean know how to deal with this famous and one of the world's most widely recognized red wine grape varieties.

4French Beaujolais

Also great with Cheddar cheese.

Beaujolais is far to be the best French wine, but because it's from France is the origin of any other wine.

5Californian Zinfrandel

Nice wine and largely better than an Italian chianti for example.

Nice wine and largely better than a chianti for example.

6Australian Shiraz

It has to be Wolfblass Yellow Label Shiraz for a quality but reasonably priced red. But Rawnsley estate do a lovely shiraz for slightly cheaper.

7Petrus (France)

The top, and the price also... Just reserved for VIPs.

8Italian Chianti

Absolutely low level quality wine.

Comment below: 30$ for a bottle of cianti.. It's wasting money.
For this sum I do prefer to have real fun.

Chianti is the king of reds, and the best red to cook with, it is also the best Red for eating with cheese. Also whether you get a $10 bottle, or a $30 plus. I have never had a bad bottle. I can't say that with Merlot, Cab Sav, or Shiraz. - raidermatty


Every year we buy 96 bottles of different French wines included some Saint-Emilion, and we really appreciate it like all French wines actually.

10Argentinian Malbec

Malbec wine is the best bar none

Home of the best wines.

The Contenders

12Margaux (French)

The famous Chateaux Margaux... So good..

13South African Pinotage
14German Spatburgunder [Pinot Noir]
15Chateau Listrac (French)
16Italian Montepulciano
17Italian Barolo
18French Bourgogne

French Bourgogne after Chianti? What a shame.

19Italian Sangiovese
20Italian Lambrusco
