About 23 degrees Fahrenheit Wine is a water based solution containing ethanol (and various other solutes), it has to get colder than the freezing point of water (32 F or 0 C) .Generally wine will freeze around 20 F (-7 C) depending on the type of wine.

Household freezers can range from 5-8 degrees Fahrenheit which is lower than the temp range it takes for wine to freeze. The water in the wine will expand into ice crystals (water is fairly unique in that it expands as it freezes) and since the volume of the bottle is nearly constant, the pressure will increase; possibly dislodging the cork.

Pure ethanol has a freezing point of approximately -173.2 degrees Fahrenheit. The water, however, will freeze at 32 F.

You may calculate the actual freezing point depression of wine using Kfp X msolute where Kfp is the Freezing Point constant of water (-1.86 C/m), and m is the molality of the solute (ethanol).

Should people use a wine rack or wine refridgerator to store red wine?

For storing red wine, the optimal temperature is 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit - not room temperature. So you should store your red wine varieties in a wine cellar or wine refrigerator at that temperature. What is most important is the temperature that the red wine is stored at. Red Wine should be stored at 50-55ºF so it can be stored in a wine rack located in an area kept at this temperature or a wine cellar/cooler or wine refrigerator kept at this temperature.
