Winemaker Notes

Opaque garnet in color with ruby reflections, this wine offers wonderfully rich and layered aromas of damson fruit, crushed blackberries, leather, violets, smoke and spice. An is as sumptuous on the palate as it is in its bouquet, with mouth-filling texture and concentration of flavors. Made from the Callet grape variety.

Best enjoyed on special occasions, with slow cooked meals such as pot roast, BBQ, and hickory smoked ribs.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 AN, is mostly Callet with some 5% Mantonegro-Fogoneu aged in oak barrels for 18 months. The oak shows on the nose dominated by balsamic aromas of cigar ash, cedar wood, cinnamon and vanilla with hints of smoke and a core of red and black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of tannins from the barrels giving it a harsh, slightly drying texture. It needs some time to calm down and settle in the bottle. I also sampled 2011 and 2012 feels fresher.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Smoky and herbal notes frame black cherry, licorice and espresso flavors in this savory red. Lively acidity and light, firm tannins give this a modest but balanced structure. A refreshing bitter finish lingers. Drink now through 2020.

Anima Negra, Spain
The cultivation of vines, with all of its advances and setbacks and with an important supporting role in the economy, has become a traditional part of our culture. Current wine making is nothing more than a continuation of our ancestral activity and it is against this background that ÀN Negra was born. The first production initially made the most of the infrastructure of the old estate buildings. Since then, the improvement of our buildings has been constant and considered to be an indispensable condition for the making of quality wines.

Born of the unique symbiosis of the climate, the land and the indigenous varieties, our inimitable wines are honest and distinctive and challenge the current trend of producing impersonal wine. It is this premise, together with the aim of offering a product of the highest quality, that marks the day-to-day running of ÀN Negra.

Known for bold reds, crisp whites and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place primary emphasis on its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally hot and dry. In the center of the country lies a vast, arid plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought.

Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache). Rioja also produces rich, nutty whites from the local Viura grape.

Ribera del Duero is gaining ground with its single varietal Tempranillo wines, recognized for their concentration of fruit and opulence. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, specializes in bold, full-bodied red blends of Garnacha (Grenache), Cariñena (Carignan), and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate.

Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal and Italy are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
