Item Description

AN is the iconic flagship wine of Anima Negra. Madeprimarily from indigenous Callet grapes (95%) with a touch of Mantonegre and Fogoneu. These indigenous grapes are hand-harvested from the oldest vines from many small vineyards in the sub-region of central Mallorca called ”Son Negre”, which translates as the ‘dark place’-ironically-because of the intense sunlight that almost bakes the soil with its intense heat. After fermentation, the wine spends seventeen months of aging in French oak followed by one year in bottle.

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.
