Most plain wines and liquors have very little carbohydrate.

Sangria isn't simply a wine. It's wine mixed with fruit juices. It's
the fruit juices that add the sugar.

The numbers here for wine are just a ballpark. Dry wines are preferable. One thing that I've noticed is that, for the most part, California wines (especially Merlot and Chardonnay) tend to have more sugar/be a lot less drier than European wines. There are exceptions to the rule, but I'd say if you're shopping for wine and don't know what to get, a European choice will be a safer bet. And, if this article is correct, whites have considerably less residual sugar than reds. If you have a penchant for sweeter wines, you might want to try adding a little artificial sweetener to dry wines.

Sangria, btw, doesn't have to be 6% sugar. Although there is commercial sangria available, my guess is that something like 95% of the Sangria consumed is homemade. Instead of adding sugar to the mix (which is traditionally done), add splenda, and instead of adding high sugar fruits like citrus and melons, add low sugar fruits like strawberries and raspberries. Brandy, a traditional ingredient has zero sugar. Combine that with some dry wine and you're good to go.
