Franz Haas Pinot Nero 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The Haas family has been growing grapes in Montagna in the province of Bolzano, Alto Adige for generations. It is only with Franz, however, the current proprietor, that they have begun to produce and bottle quality wines. Franz studied at Geisenheim in Germany before working as a broker of Italian wines into the German market. After several years, he took over the running of the family business. Franz Haas goes to tremendous lengths to grow good grapes, and then strives to preserve the flavours of the fruit during winemaking. As a result the wines that he produces are infused with great character, and show a rare purity and balance on the palate. This Pinot Nero is light ruby red. On the nose, it is open and generous, with perfumes of ripe red berries whose juicy freshness is tempered by a spicy sheen of oak. On the palate, it is ripe and rounded, with sufficient structure to balance the soft ripe fruit and fresh acidity.

We have been producing estate wines since 1880, the year in which the present-day winery was established. A family-run estate, it was handed down through the generations to the first-born son Franz Haas. Through the years and the constant commitment of its owners and employees, this wine making estate has evolved into today's innovative winery. We vinify grapes from 50 hectares of vineyards, of which 28 hectares are estate-grown or rented, while the balance comes from vine growers with plots in particularly vocated microareas. Read less
