The power of the Mediterranean. Born in 1994, Ànima Negra is the reference winery for authentic, personal and quality wines from the island of Mallorca. Her alma maters are Miquel Àngel Cerdá and Pere Obrador who have been carrying their philosophy of conceiving wine around the world for more than 25 years.
The Ànima Negra winery, located on the island of Mallorca, makes its wines in the old “possessió” of Son Burguera. This building, near Felanitx, dates back to the 16th century. XIII and from its beginning it had facilities for the production of wine, intended to supply the consumption of the local people. This activity has survived continuously to the present day and has contributed to shaping the island landscape, geographically integrated into the Mediterranean. The cultivation of the vineyard, with advances and setbacks, and with an important or secondary role for the economy, has become part of its culture. Current winemaking work does nothing more than perpetuate an ancestral activity.
Manual harvest in 10 kg boxes. A first selection of the grapes is carried out in the vineyard, and once they arrive at the winery, they are placed in a cold chamber overnight to cool the grapes to 8-10oC. Subsequently, There is another selection of clusters on the sorting table and then a selection with optical technology grain by grain in order to obtain the best grapes. Through a gravity system, the selected grapes are transported to 4,000-liter French oak vats to begin fermentation at a controlled temperature. This fermentation is produced by native yeasts, which for years have been identified and selected from the best plots, creating their own genetic bank. Malolactic fermentation occurs in new, very fine-grained French oak barrels in which the wine is aged.
The wine will remain for 14-18 months in new French barrels of medium and medium-long toasting with racking halfway through aging. Before being bottled, it spends about two months in cement tanks.
