Franz Hans Pinot Nero 2016 - Alto Adige, Italy


The Story

Seven generations in the vineyard and not much has changed, not even the name. The Franz Haas winery was founded in 1880 by Franz Haas and has passed been down from father to eldest son (all of them named Franz Haas) for generations. The current owner Franziskus has also named his son Franz – that’s how seriously the Haas family takes continuity and heritage. Franziskus is as genial and creative as his amazing, sprightly and colorful packaging. The Franz Haas mission has always been to express the character, typicity, and longevity of the unique Alto Adige area – the bilingual, Italian/German province of Bolzano in the northeastern region of Trentino-Alto Adige, which is etched into the foothills of the Cislon mountain as part of the Natural Reserve of Mount Corno.

M+Q Notes

Ruby red in colour. The bouquet opens with notes of black cherries and raspberries, marzipan and plum jam, cloves and cinnamon, ending finally with some light earthy aromas. Fresh and lively on the palate, elegant tannins make this a mighty fine example of the best Pinot Nero’s around.
