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.
This wine clearly attests to the rising notoriety of the Merlot in general, and Italian Merlot in particular, by offering a complex, full-flavored style but without the more astringent tannins characteristic of Cabernet Sauvignon. Ruby red in color, with aromas of currants and cherries, Ecco Domani Merlot offers supple plum and black cherry flavors on the palate, and a ripe, rich finish.
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.
