Gewürztraminer Alto Adige DOC 2021 - Franz Haas

It is the aromatic vine par excellence. The one typical of this corner of Italy that looks very closely at Northern Europe. We are of course talking about a Gewürztraminer, which is presented here in Franz Haas's interpretation. It is a wine characterised by a beautiful intense golden yellow colour, with a deep bouquet of complex aromas such as lychee, orange peel, cloves, nutmeg and rose. To appreciate it at its best, the producer suggests, the wine should rest for a few moments in the glass, thus having time to slowly come into contact with oxygen and release its subtle aromatic notes. In the mouth, it is full and stimulating, thanks to its fine structure, lively freshness and pungent vivacity, with a slightly bitter and very persistent final note. Franz Haas' Gewürztraminer is not a wine to be drunk within a few months of release. On the contrary, it is a finely aromatic white wine that only reaches its full development after several months of maturation in the bottle. It is the perfect wine for an aperitif with friends, but if we really want to appreciate it, we should serve it during an elegant dinner, with liver pâté and shellfish. Simply fabulous!

There is a name that every good wine lover in Italy identifies with the Pinot Noir grape variety. It is that of Franz Haas, a winemaker in South Tyrol. Franz Haas, however, is not just a winery and not just a brand. Franz Haas, in fact, is first and foremost a man and his family who have been producing wine for seven generations and who put their whole philosophy of life into their bottles: a continuous and tireless search for perfection. The Franz Haas winery was founded in 1880 and has been handed down for seven generations to the eldest son of the family, who has the honour and responsibility of always bearing the same name, Franz (the current head of the winery is Franz VII, while Franz VIII will be his natural heir). In the vineyard, the vines are managed with absolute respect for the environment, using only organic substances to favour the natural process of cultivation and fertilisation. In 1999, with the first signs of the recent climate change, in order not to compromise on quality, several hectares were leased at altitude and in 2000 clones more suited to the new conditions were planted. Today, the company's vineyards reach over 1100 metres above sea level and are currently among the highest in South Tyrol. Cultivating at these altitudes is more difficult and strenuous, but the wines that emerge from these lands are distinguished by very special characteristics that make them unique. And millions of wine lovers around the world are grateful for the effort!
