Cariñena
The Cariñena DO in the Aragon region was originally named for the grape of the same name, which used to dominate local plantings. However, Garnacha has replaced much of those plantings more recently due to its popularity and response to the region’s growing conditions. The continental climate is given to extremes of temperature, with hot summer days with low rainfall and much cooler evenings, thanks to the “Cierzo” winds blowing from the north. Grapes ripen slowly without becoming too alcoholic, and with attentive vinification, tend to be well structured. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah are also planted and used for blending. Besides oak-aged reds, Viura (Macabeo) is grown for white wines and Moscatel for sweet wines. Young, refreshing rosados made from Garnacha and Cariñena are also popular.
