Franz Haas Pinot Nero Alto Adige DOC
100% Pinot Nero. The nose opens with notes of Maraschino cherries and raspberries, marzipan and plum jam, cloves and cinnamon. In the end, aromas of underbrush are perceived. On the palate, the wine is fresh and lively thanks to the elegant tannins. Inviting and flavorful, “a white among reds.”
