Merlot Alto Adige DOC 2019 - Franz Haas

It is hard to make a wrong choice when there is a pure Merlot in the bottle and the golden Franz Haas inscription on the label. The first is synonymous with pleasantness in the glass. The second certifies its quality. Franz Haas harvests his Merlot grapes in vineyards not too high up, between 250 and 300 metres above sea level, on soils mainly of erosive porphyritic origin. Once in the cellar, the grapes are immediately sent for processing. Vinification takes place in open steel vats where frequent punching-down and pumping-over takes place. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine is then racked into barriques for malolactic fermentation. Afterwards, the wine matures in barriques for 18 months and, after bottling, it is refined for another year in bottles. Garnet red in colour, the nose reveals notes of elderberries, wild berries and dried figs. All enriched by spicy aromas of freshly ground pepper and star anise. In the mouth it conquers with its great freshness, articulated structure, fullness and firm tannin. The long finish recalls toasted and vanilla notes. This international red goes well with game, red meat and hard mature cheese.

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!
