Red Wine Storage

I bought a great bottle of red wine yesterday, and I'm ashamed/impressed to say that the bf and I only finished half. (We can restrain ourselves....who knew??). I never know how to store red wine once it's been opened. Is it alright to stopper it and leave it at room temp? For how long? I'm a food safety nut, and I don't want any germies in my shiraz.
