Calatayud Wine

for this region?

 

This region, located in the southwest of the Aragon near Zaragoza has evolved from being mainly a bulk wine-producing area to one with more of a distinguished association. The combination of hot and dry summers with high altitude vineyards ensures wines rich in character but without excessive alcohol content. 
 
The majority of these big, bold wines are produced from Garnacha. The region is known for using fruit from older vines and the local wine authority, the Consejo Regulador, has set quality standards based on vine age. Those grown from vines 50 years old or older are given the classification “Calatayud Superior” and are highly sought-after, commanding top prices. 
 
Rosados from Garnacha are also quite common. Other grapes grown in Calatayud are Tempranillo and Mazuelo. Some whites are produced from Viura (Macabeo), Malvasia and Chardonnay.
