The soil of Tarragona has been offering up wonderful wines since it was the Iberian capital of the Roman Empire centuries ago. Today the area specializes in licoroso, these are sweet, fortified wines, and rancios - dry wines which are both known for their bouquets and frank tastes. The most unique, however, is the Tarragona Classic or “Vi de missa” (wine for mass).
