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.

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

Blend: 95% Callet,5% Mantonegre-Fogoneu

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I sampled the unbottled 2017 reds, including the 2017 AN, the flagship bottling here. It's mostly Callet with some Mantonegro and Fogoneu found in the small vineyards and comes from a dry, early and low-yielding year. The wine I tasted was a sample of the final blend that was taken from barrel and assembled some ten days before I tasted it. I found plenty of luxurious oak aromas—smoke, spices, dark chocolate and toast—with something creamy and a core of ripe berry fruit. The palate was voluptuous and juicy, with creamy and smoky notes, very oaky, in need of some time in bottle. But I think this will always remain oaky. This is a great commercial red that will please many, but I find that the identity of the place and varieties gets lost in all that new oak.
Barrel Sample: 90-92

Wine Enthusiast

Lightly herbal berry aromas are spicy and heavy with oaky barrel notes. A full, ripe and creamy palate offers medicinal berry and oak flavors that are particular to this Callet-led blend from Mallorca. A lasting finish does not fade for at least a minute. Drink through 2025.

Wine Spectator
This aromatic red shows floral, smoky and herbal notes that frame ripe flavors of dried cherry and raspberry preserves. Light tannins and firm acidity keep this focused. Distinctive.

Anima Negra, Spain
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.

Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, 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.

Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety 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.
