Franz Haas Manna Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT
40% Riesling, 20% Chardonnay, 15% Gewürztraminer, 15% Kerner, 10% Sauvignon Blanc. Yellowish gold, though color turns more golden as time passes. Complex and layered notes of elderflowers, pistachios and rose petals. Structured, concentrated, elegant and mineral. Manna is a versatile wine, continually transforming. The high percentage of Riesling contributes to keeping it vibrant over the years.
“Since its foundation in 1880, the winery has focused on the quality of the grapes and bringing out the best in them. Special attention has always been given to using the minimum and most selective chemical substances during cultivation and fertilization.”
