Franz Haas Manna Vignetti delle Dolimiti 2015
Manna is Franz’s white blend of Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Traminer and Kerner, offering rich complexity, layered fruit and texture with a long finish. As a young wine it has a nuanced golden yellow appearance but after several years of aging it turns to intense golden tones. Thanks to its individual features, the Manna seduces with a complex and layered bouquet recalling notes of elderflower, pistachios and rose petals. It stands out also for its complexity and concentrations that are combined with a soft elegance and a mineral structure. During the many phases of its development this wine displays different characteristics and perspectives by changing both in the bottle and in the glass continuing to surprise and amaze. Manna shows its best qualities when combined with noble and rich dishes. It is fascinating how this wine adapts itself to different dishes, among which shellfish, fish and white meat.
|Varietal(s)||Riesling Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc Traminer|
World Wine – A terrific IGT wine that speaks volumes about the cool climate, mountainous north of Italy and its beautiful wines. It is a true Italian cuvee from the Dolomites (in a screw cap bottle). This white blend of Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Kerner and Gewürztraminer offers crisp aromas and a delineated approach in which stone fruit, wild sage, citrus and mineral nuances are beautifully presented. The integration of those layers is seamless and smooth. In the mouth, Manna shows noticeable richness and creaminess.
James Suckling – Loads of dried lime, papaya and mango aromas and flavors. Full body, lots of fruit and a fresh and bright finish. Complex blend of Trentino whites - riesling, chardonnay, sauvignon and a late-harvest traminer. Longtime favorite of mine.
