In the glass, this wine is an intense golden colour with a deep bouquet of complex fragrances including lychee, orange peel, roses and spiced notes of clove and nutmeg. On the palate, it is fresh with a vibrant acidity and finishes with lingering almond notes.
The Haas family has been growing grapes in Montagna in the province of Bolzano in the Alto Adige for generations. However, it is only with Franz, the current proprietor, that they have begun to produce and bottle quality wines. Franz studied at Geisenheim 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.
The vines are cultivated using the Guyot method and are planted in deep clay soils with a high percentage of pebbles at altitudes of between 350 and 650 metres above sea level. The vineyards, based in the municipalities of Montagna, Gleno, Pinzano and Mazzon, have south-western exposure.
After a brief period of maceration, the must was fermented at low temperatures in stainless-steel vats. The wine then matured on its lees with frequent bâtonnage for about six months before bottling.
