Maturing wine and preserving quality

In the case of red wine, only those with a high content of tannin can be stored for a long time. Red wines in general preserve their quality for 2-5 years, but wines of excellent quality and high tannin content can be stored for 8-10 years or as much as 25-30 years.

Oxidative white wines of excellent quality, properly bottled and with a tight-fitting cork can be stored for an almost indefinite period.

In general, the special quality wines of the great years keep their top quality for 4-8 years while other quality wines can be stored for 1-6 years.
