"I found the 2018 AN/2 too oaky for my taste, as the place, grape and vintage character is hidden by a generous dose of spice, toast and smoke aromas that give it a mainstream/international character. It's possibly fresher and more expressive than previous years. It fermented in concrete and 4,000-liter oak vats with selected yeasts and matured in oak barrels for one year.

"I found the 2018 AN/2 too oaky for my taste, as the place, grape and vintage character is hidden by a generous dose of spice, toast and smoke aromas that give it a mainstream/international character. It's possibly fresher and more expressive than previous years. It fermented in concrete and 4,000-liter oak vats with selected yeasts and matured in oak barrels for one year. It's a blend of 65% Callet, 20% Fogoneu and Mantonegro and complemented with 15% Syrah. The wine shows a nice bright ruby color and wants to show the delicacy of the Majorcan grapes with a medium body and fine tannins, moderate alcohol and a nice texture, but unfortunately, it's too influenced by aromas and flavors of wood. I feel this is moving in the right direction, possibly aided by the natural conditions of the year, but the oak needs to be fine-tuned."

Anima Negra

View all from Anima Negra
Anima NegraÀnima Negra was founded in 1994 when two self-taught friends -- Pere Ignasi Obrador and Miquelàngel Cerdà -- decided that the wines of their native Mallorca weren't reaching full potential. Taking advantage of some unused milk tanks at the dairy farm owned by Pere's family, they made two barriques of wine from Callet grapes (a native Mallorcan varietal) they'd purchased from local farmers. The initial results were so encouraging that the friends decided to form a partnership and continue pursuing their newly found passion for wine.

Situated in the southeast of Mallorca, Ànima Negra winery produces its wines on the old country estate of Son Burguera, close to the town of Felanitx. The buildings date back to the 13th century, and contain a traditional winemaking area, which historically was used to supply wine for locals living on and near the estate.

Ànima Negra sources its grapes from more than 135 carefully selected parcels of land that the partners either own or control. Virtually all of these parcels are within a six-mile radius of the winery, and most of the vines are 50 to 85 years old.
