Just 7,500 bottles were produced of Supernova Negre, Ca’n Verdura’s premier red wine from the indigenous red mantonegro grape grown in cal vermell soils, consisting of red, iron-rich clay and limestone with small and medium-sized galets. The flagship Supernova red originates from the best plots of old-vine mantonegro from bush-trained vineyards planted in the 1950s in the surrounding villages of Binissalem, including the village of Santa Maria, which are considered the finest vineyards in the area. Grapes come from the Cas Pastor, Sa Bassa Blanca, and Plà de Buc plots, planted at 130 meters. This fragrant, Mediterranean red is medium-bodied, with notes of wild red berries, citrus, fresh herbs, and exotic spices, and the wine is made with low intervention and minimal sulfur at bottling. Production is necessarily very limited, as every bottle in this garage winery is sold each vintage.
Vinification – After manual harvest in small boxes, alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks at 24°C. Maceration lasts 20 to 25 days, depending on the parcel. The wine then ages for ten months in a combination of 500L, 2000L, and 3000L French oak barrels.
