      Strong red color that reaches into the violet. The bouquet is very intense and broad with berries, fresh grass and flowers. On the palate, this Lagrein presents a strong personality with a harmonious structure and good tannin content. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The Franz Haas 2016 Alto Adige Lagrein is a plush and rich red wine with soft tannins and dark concentration. Lagrein offers dense primary fruit with raw aromas of summer cherry and juicy blackberry. Despite all that brooding darkness, the wine is actually medium-bodied in weight with moderate persistence. If you are looking for varietal simplicity and purity, this is one fantastic expression of the versatile and informal Lagrein grape." Robert Parker

    • Pinot Nero Alto Adige DOC 2016

      Pinot Nero Alto Adige DOC 2016

      The Pinot Nero with its complex play of colours is an elegant, very harmonious wine. In the glass it develops intensive fruit notes of raspberries and sour cherries and in later years fine forest fruit aromas. On the palate it is characterised by its fine tannin, which gives it fullness and softness. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright red. Dark red cherries and fresh herbs on the clean nose. Enters fruity and crisp, then a tad bitter in the middle, finishing medium-long with a noteworthy saline presence. Finishes long and vibrant." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "Cranberries, lemons, fresh herbs, cedar and dried spices. Medium body, fine tannins, fresh acidity and a tight finish." James Suckling

      "Pinot Nero from cool-climate Alto Adige tends to show enormous purity and elegance. Indeed, it is my firm belief that this is one of the most successful territories for quality expressions of this delicate French grape. The 2016 Alto Adige Pinot Nero made by the folks at Franz Haas is a textbook expression with bright aromas of blueberry, violet and lavender that lift gracefully from the bouquet. The palate is tight and silky but beautifully polished and streamlined nonetheless. This is a beautiful wine from a balanced vintage." Robert Parker

      “Manna” Bianco Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT 2018

      As a young wine Manna has golden-yellow nuances of colour, after a few years of maturation they turn into strong golden tones. Manna is very special: complex, multi-layered with a bouquet of elderberry, pistachio, apricot, nutmeg and delicate rose petals. Concentrated, voluminous and at the same time elegant and complex in taste. A wine that, in the course of its evolution, can be discovered from different perspectives and develops its character more and more. Already the young wine changes in the glass and surprises again and again. SUPERIORE.DE

    About the winemakers
    Franz Haas
    Trentino-South Tyrol
    Franz Haas

    An unmistakable trademark of the Franz Haas winery are the labels of its wines. They are expressive, full of life, colourful and the work of the Italian painter and architect Riccardo Schweizer, whose artistic career is related to that of famous painters and building experts such as Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall or Le Corbusier. Since its beginnings, the winery from Montan in South Tyrol has worked with great passion to express the quality of its grapes in the best possible way. The heart of Franz Haas is particularly beating for the Pinot Noir. Therefore, the selection "Pinot Nero Swiss" only bottled in the best years.

    The basis for today's operation was laid in 1880. For seven generations the rudder has been handed over into the hands of the first-born. Franz Haas, very receptive to innovation and new tasks, today processes grapes from around 50 hectares of his own, but also from some leased plots. Further grapes are supplied by local winegrowers. The vineyards are located in the municipalities of Neumarkt, Montan and Aldein and reach altitudes from 240 to 1,150 metres above sea level. The areas are distributed over several different microclimatic zones and have soils that offer everything from unevenly grained sands to clay and very calcareous soil.

    Franz Haas is an enthusiast in the eternal search for perfection. As one of the most gifted winegrowers in South Tyrol, he faces the challenges of modern agriculture, as can be seen, for example, from the progress made in the biological cultivation of his vineyards. In the cellar, the wine producer, who likes to experiment and is also recognised abroad, does not shy away from reducing technology and using wild yeasts for red wines. In addition to Pinot Noir, other stylistically flawless, elegant wines with strong character are produced in the vineyard's sanctum - pressed from Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio or Moscato Rosa, for example. The first unmistakable wine label was, by the way, that for the "Pinot Nero Swiss 1987". Franz Haas's writing in gold on a black background was - as the owner of the estate proudly states - at that time "a little sensation" I was. SUPERIORE.DE

    "A vineyard such as that of Franz Haas is not found every day ... In its vineyards are represented all the main grape varieties of the province, interpreted in a style that aims at drinking pleasure and elegance."Gambero Rosso
