Buy Franz Haas Lagrein
Lagrein is a deep and intense red, which in certainyears tends towards violet tones. Its bouquet is very intense and broad, running from ripe red fruits to violets, to spicy notes of fresh grass and cocoa. On the palate it seduces with its decisive personality, its solid and velvety tannins and its enjoyable full bodiedness, ending with a long and enveloping finale.

Lagrein, one of the three native vines of the Alto Adige, grows in areas kissed by the sun in the municipality of Egna, at altitudes varying between 220 and 240 meters. The warm, deep earth is of floodplain origin, with a high percentage of gravel, with an exposure ranging from south to southwest. Thanks to this micro-climactic condition, Lagrein, as it is a late harvesting variety, reaches full maturity.
Wine maker notes
After having been carefully selected in the field, the grapes are delicately separated from their stems and fermented in open vats. To avoid the excessive extraction of tannins, during the wine-making process the must are not excessively pumped over the marc. After the fermentation the wine is racked into barriques where the malolactic fermentation takes place and the wine ages for 15 months. Finally it is aged in the bottle for a few months.

Food pairing
The wine can be drunk young; aging in the bottle however makes it rounder and more harmonious. It pairs excellently with strong and savoury dishes, grilled red meats.

Producer
The Franz Haas Winery has endeavoured to show the wines it produces always in the best light. It was established in 1880 and has been handed down through the generations up to now to a Franz Haas. Around 55 vine-planted hectares are worked, subdivided among owners, renters and assignees.Franz Haas has always been recognised as a great enthusiast and cultivator of the most difficult vine, one that is the most sensitive and repays the greatest: the Pinot Nero. Not withstanding all the attention, the brain power, the work, the product isn’t always at the same level as its origins, so the selection of the Pinot Noir, called „Schweizer“, isn’t always put on the market. Another detail that makes Franz Haas stand out is the collaboration with the artist Riccardo Schweizer, who designed the labels. He actually painted together with Picasso, Chagall, Cocteau, Paul Éluard oder Le Corbusier. All the labels were given to Franz by Maria Luisa Manna, as a good omen when he released his wines. The first label Franz chose was the fashionable Pinot Nero Schweizer label, whose first year was ’87, but released in ’90. Twenty-one years ago, much more traditional, simple labels were used, then the black and gold label came out, and as simple as it was, it certainly had an impact. But apart from the quality of the wine, people began to appreciate this type of label a lot, and even today, twenty years on, they stand out and are remembered on wine shop shelves and restaurant tables.
