ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Ànima Negra Son Vi Negre de la Terra de Mallorca

Ànima Negra Son Vi Negre de la Terra de Mallorca was produced mainly with Callet and small percentages of Fogoneu and Mantonegro. It fermented in 4,000-liter oak vats and small concrete vats with the yeasts they had selected for five years from the Son Negre Vineyard, and it matured in new 225-liter French oak barrels for 12 months. The wine has a smoky and balsamic note, spicy clove,  toasty and smoky dark fruits with hints of incense, but it wants to show the floral quality of the Callet.

About Ànima Negra

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 their 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.
