During the 1990s, Aragón used to produce bulk wines. Recently, they have been focusing more on quality wines with more complexity.
One of the cheapest wines in Aragón is Grenache (Garnacha). Despite being simple, they are unique with spicy berry fruit and savory notes of white pepper, wild herbs, and flowers. Campo de Borja, also known as “The Empire of Garnacha” is one of the famous Grenache wines.
Cariñan is a medium-bodied red wine that has plenty of aromas but lacks a deeper body and color. It shows aromas of dark and black fruits, pepper, licorice and also imparts spicy notes. Because of its medium-bodied style, it can be used as an ingredient in hearty dishes as well as lighter ones.
DO Somontano is the most popular DO in Aragón and forms the basis for the great wines of the region. The Somontano wines have high-quality alcohols, fruity and optimal acidity.
