VT Mallorca (Balearic Islands)
Tianna Negre is a red wine produced by the winery Celler Tianna Negre in the municipality ofBinissalem, D.O. Binissalem-Mallorca.
Celler Tianna Negre is the project of the family Morey-Garau, and the company Antonio Nadal, S.A. (Bodegas Túnel), which is born from the idea of building a winery to produce their own wines. At first they made their first wine in the garage of a friend who was a winemaker. It was in 2007 when they opened their own winery, equipped with state-of-the-art technology, enabling them to take care of the grapes in the entire production process, at the same time as they paid utmost respect for the environment.
The Morey-Garay family is originally from the municipality of Consell, a neighbouring village of Binissalem, with a great winemaking tradition. This is where they first vineyard, with more than 35 years of age, was located. Currently, the winery has 35 hectares of vineyards distributed throughout the region of Raiguer. The vineyards are planted on soils with predominant Call Vermell, a calcareous soil with a clayey texture, rich in iron, which gives it its characteristic red colour. The climate of the area is typically Mediterranean, with very mild summers and moderately cold winters.
Tianna Negre is a wine made from Manto Negro, Callet, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from their own vineyards.
The grapes are manually harvested and placed in boxes. Then, they are selected in the vineyards. Once they arrive at the winery, they ferment in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature. The maceration takes place for 38 days, with pump-overs, punch-downs and delestages. Once the wine has acquired the desired structure and complexity, it is aged for 10 months in new French oak barrels with different toastings.
Tianna Negre is an intense, mature and extremely lingering wine. The aromas of ripe black fruits stand out on an elegant toasted background. A great, extremely Mediterranean wine.
