Tasting notes
Moscato Rosa is an aromatic grape native to the hills of Alto Adige. This delicate grape is vinified as a red wine to extract colour, in a sweet, lively style with fresh, clove perfumes, with touches of cinnamon and orange peel.

Moscato Rosa Schweizer

From: £43.55

The Moscato Rosa vines, a native aromatic variety of the Alto Adige, grow at an altitude of 250-300 metres in a well-ventilated area in the municipality of Egna. The wind is essential to stop the humidity from causing the development of mould such as botrytis. For this very delicate variety, botrytis must be prevented because its presence would cause a reduction of the aromatic components. The vineyards selected for Moscato Rosa are south and south west facing with soils comprising a mixture of porphyry, sand, clay and chalk.

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.

Vinification
The grapes were macerated for less than 24 hours in order to avoid the extraction of astringent tannins. Once the desired characteristics were reached, the fermentation was interrupted by refrigeration and filtration and the young wine was then transferred into steel tanks where it remained until bottling.
