A rarity straight from the Balearic Islands and the Callet grape variety!
In order to be able to exploit old Vine vines in Callet, Anima Negra had to work plots, which also included other grape varieties. Although they were excellent vines, the use of international varieties did not fit into AN's philosophy.
For this reason he decided to create a new cuvée, a blend composed for half of Callet, supplemented by Fogoneu, Manto Negro, Syrah, Cabernet and Grenache, in roughly equal quantities. The wine is aged for 9 months in French and American barrels. The result is exceptional.
The Callet Grape:
This rare grape variety (less than 420 ha in the world) is native to the island of Mallorca. It is a variety that produces low yields. It is, most of the time, assembled with other varieties such as Cabernet, Manto Negro or Fogoneu to produce powerful and spicy wines. The Callet brings complexity and a good ability to farm in barrels. The typical aromas of this grape variety are strawberry and cherry, as well as spices.
