Product Description
Details

A rather unique wine, Ànima Negra ÀN was born with the aim of highlighting the remarkable qualities of the indigenous grapes from Mallorca.

Produced by Ànima Negra Viticultors, the 2016 vintage of this Spanish red wine is, for the first time, a single varietal CalletMallorca's most important native variety. Thus, the wine highlights more than ever its uncompromisingly local character.

All of the grapes come from vines between 40 and 60 years of age planted in poor soils with an abundance of ferric oxide.

Harvested by hand in little boxes, once in the cellar the grape bunches were destemmed and vinified in concrete tanks and in wooden vats.

After that, 60% of Ànima Negra ÀN 2016 completed malolactic fermentation in oak barrels, and the rest in concrete tanks.

Finally, this wine labeled as VT Mallorca was aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels.

Before its commercial release, it was aged for a further 2 months in tanks.

Decant this red wine from Mallorca 1 hour before drinking.

Drink now until 2026.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Ànima Negra ÀN has a bright, clean cherry colour with some ruby tinges.

Nose

This top-notch single varietal Callet from Mallorca has a rather unique aromatic profile. Expressive aromas of Mediterranean underbrush, red fruit, wet earth, fresh tobacco, black olives, chocolate, toast, flowers, and some dim mineral notions.

Palate

Classy and sophisticated, with a substantial volume, a first class acidity and plenty of room for growth.  This wine by Ànima Negra Viticultors has a detailed and intricate texture, with a lush passage through the palate, excellent definition and abundant information. Remembrances of pipe tobacco, lavender, fennel, rosemary, wild berries and toast. Long, balsamic finish.

Our personal opinion

One of Mallorca's most representative wines, Ànima Negra ÀN 2016 is something quite special. It is worth considering, though, that this Crianza red wine needs some years to perform at its best.

Slightly overpriced, but nevertheless very good. A little less oak would do it a huge good. Review by Great performance (Posted on 15/03/2019)

Big fan of mallorca wines. This and Gallinas y focas I have found particularly interesting. This has more substance and it will live in the bottle a good 6 years. Review by Atreyu (Posted on 02/07/2018)

A favourite from Majorca. Classy, bright and fragrant. Silky body, with a controlled use of oak. Spices, flowers and a long aftertaste. Review by Colin ET (Posted on 06/11/2017)
