Anima Negra AN/2 2012
Wine AdvocateAn entry level red, the 2012 AN/2 is a blend of 65% Callet, 20% Mantonegro-Fogoneu and 15% Syrah from168 plots of vineyards! The wine fermented in vat and aged in barrel for 13 months. At first there's a clear note of raspberry, but soon the vanilla takes over revealing a good freshness in the nose with Mediterranean notes. The palate is medium-bodied with lactic, creamy flavors and more influence from the oak. It is clean and nice with an approachable, commercial profile. If you think this is a boutique wine, you're wrong, 238,000 bottles were produced
Wine SpectatorBlack cherry, licorice, tar and herbal flavors mingle in this savory red. Leans more on acidity than tannins for structure, finishing with a refreshing bitter note. Drink now through 2018. 16,666 cases made.
