Best red wine for sangria

What’s the best red wine for sangria? A dry wine is usually best like a pinot noir. They dryness will balance out the sweetness. If you like a sweet sangria, which I do, use a red wine blend.

You don’t need to buy an expense bottle of red since you are mixing it with juice and fruit. I will usually grab around a $10 bottle of wine. I grabbed this bottle at Trader Joes.
