Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby-red in color, ÀN/2 has complex aromas of savory spices, wild raspberries, dark cherry fruit and a hint of violets and smokiness. On the palate the wine is silky and elegant with intense flavors of mature fruit. Well-balanced with a long finish.

This wine pairs excellently with pork chops, rabbit ravioli, or roasted leg of duck.

Blend: 65% Callet, 20% Mantonegre-Fogoneu, 15% Syrah

Wine Spectator
I also sampled the still-unbottled 2017 AN/2, the "second" red wine. With a production of about 20% less than normal, it comes from a challenging year, where they worked hard in the selection (they have an optical sorting table, which allowed them to select the quality of grapes they want for the wine). It is mostly Callet with small amounts of Fogoneu and Mantonegro and a touch of Syrah from slightly younger vines, so the Syrah adds color and structure. It fermented in stainless steel and concrete vats with yeasts they have isolated from their own vineyards. It aged in new, second and third use oak barrels, with a small percentage of American and Central European oak. It has a perfumed nose with plenty of lactic notes and generous spice and smoke with a touch of violets and meat, marked by the élevage in barrel. The palate is juicy and revealed fine-grained tannins and plenty of oak-related flavors. I found it quite marked by the oak. This was in a tank settling down waiting for bottling, so it's very young.

Anima Negra Winery Image

Ànima 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. Natural farming is prioritized at Ànima Negra. The vines are dry-farmed and are not fertilized, helping to ensure they produce small, concentrated fruit. Chemical insecticides and herbicides are avoided in favor of biodynamic practices, and indigenous yeasts are used for almost all fermentation.The resulting unique, elegant wines have garnered worldwide praise, and earned a loyal following among fine wine enthusiasts throughout the world. In 2010, the Slow Food Movement honored Ànima Negra with induction into the Ark of Taste.

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
