No. As a matter of fact, some wines should net be aged and are recommended to be drunk young (within a year-year and a half after production).

What are the best dates to drink red wine

That is a tough question and impossible to answer with a blanket definition. The vast majority of wines are made for immediate consumption, but will also be good to drink for a couple of years. In general, red wines age better than whites and certain grape varieties and wine styles age better than others: wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Port wines can be very long-lived for example. Whether such wines improve with age is a subjective opinion: older wines trade some of their fruit and vibrancy for developed flavors, and it is a trade-off that some like more than others.

The temperature in my wine rack went under 12 Celsius does it means that my wine is ruined?

When it comes to cooler degrees the only thing you should be worried about is the time that will take your bottles to age. When the temperature is below 10 Celsius the aging process stops but there is no danger to your wine at all.
