Winemaker's Notes

Ecco Domani Merlot is made from hand harvested, 100% varietal Merlot grapes. The wine was vinified using an average maceration time on the skins of 10 to 15 days. The wine was then fined prior to bottling.

The vibrant flavors and good acidity of this Merlot make it an excellent match with a wide range of foods, including tomato-based pasta dishes, grilled meats, poultry, and marinated grilled vegetables.
