Is my cellar destroying my wine?

Hello all,

I have a cellar in the building I live. It's in the basement. It has no windows and it is underground. I thought it would be perfect for keeping some wine. However, recently I bought a temperature / humidity measurement tool and saw that the temperature varies from 4.5°C (40F) to 10.5 °C (51F). Moreover, the humidity ranges from 45% to 65%.

Do you think it's ok for my wine or not? I knew it was a bit too cold, however that wouldn't be too much of an issue if the temperature didn't vary so much. Now I'm worried that my wine will be spoiled.

What do you think?
