Franz Haas Pinot Nero 2020: Medium-light bodied. Great acidity & balance. Red fruit notes of strawberry, raspberry, pomegranate & cherry. Dried herbs. Soft oak. Slight warm finish. All in all, a fresh & delicate Pinot Nero from the Alto Adige region. I would say, probably the best Italian Pinot Nero out there. Cheers to all!🍷🍷 — a month ago

Thanksgiving Paso Robles trip second day first stop. Tiny production of 100% Pinot Noir grown at Robert Haas’s home in the Templeton Gap. Quite precise. Purity of fruit. Fresh red fruited - cranberry juice, sea weed, bright pale ruby, medium acidity and medium minus tannins. — 2 months ago
An Alto Adige Riesling,with some age. Bonkers concentration. Familiar petrol & peach on the nose, but less German or Alsatian acidity & more Italian rounded contours- though that could be the age too. Just enough RS. Perhaps the only tell of its 15$ pedigree is a simple mid palate. Still, some length,& enough acidity to make it lip smacking killer good. Crazy Eddie (for old NYCers who remember the stores’ ads) INSANE bargain. — 22 days ago
Melon and minerality, clean and fresh with nice body. Very expressive. — a month ago
Alto Adige whites get on base for me. Always aromatically expressive, always with something to say, rarely a whiff. Where the field can sometimes be opulent and overtly aromatic, Haas's Manna is comparatively a restrained elegant.
Opens with specs of gold and green, like grassy unfiltered olive oil. Aromas are there, not shouting. Enhancing, just right. A punch of floral honey, like honeysuckle. And incense of lime, aloe vera, pressed basil, and jasmine tea. Strong flavors too in a medium body. Bitter tea, lychee, peach, and apple. Manna. — 7 months ago
