Franz Haas Lagrein is a red wine produced from one of the native vines of South Tyrol that grows on a soil of alluvial origin.
In the glass, Franz Haas' Lagrein shows a deep and intense red, the nose is intense with a bouquet that ranges from notes of ripe red fruits to hints of violet and spicy notes of grass and cocoa . In the mouth it seduces with its strong personality and is characterized by a velvety and elegant sip. Ideal to drink young but after a period of aging in the bottle it is softer and rounder. It goes perfectly with meat-based main courses.
Following a careful selection, the grapes are harvested and subsequently de -stemmed and fermented in open vats . Malolactic fermentation takes place in oak barrels where Franz Haas' Lagrein matures for 10-12 months . Finally, the wine is further refined in the bottle for a few months before being put on the market.
