PRICE ON 7/28/2014: $14.79

Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 86% Merlot (6% surmaturo Merlot), 5% surmaturo Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% surmaturo Lagrein

Ecco Domani 2005 Merlot displays a deep red color tinged with ruby-red reflections. It is soft and lovely in the modern red style, with aromas of well-ripened blackberry fruit. It has subtle tannins and a long, complex finish characterized by notes of spice and cherry on the palate.

This Merlot is a perfect match for a wide range of foods, particularly tomato-based pasta dishes, poultry and grilled meats.

About Ecco Domani:

Distinctly Italian varietals, Ecco Domani wines are contemporary in style and taste. They are easy-to-drink, well-balanced wines concentrating on the best qualities of the fruit and the regions in which they are grown, rather than on excessive winemaker influence or oak aging.

Young Italian winemaker Fabrizio Gatto and his colleagues scour Italy's premier growing regions for wines that express the best characteristics of their areas. Those wines are then fashioned into final blends and sent to Trento, Italy, where they are bottled in a state-of-the-art facility. The Ecco Domani wines that ultimately arrive in the U.S. exhibit the best of what Italy has to offer.

"By choosing the very best grapes from the finest regions of Italy, it is possible for us to craft exquisite wines with marvelous complexity. The intricate fruit flavors which result in the finished wines are unsurpassed, and marry well with a variety of superb cuisines," says Fabrizio Gatto.

Since the debut of Ecco Domani wines in 1996, it has become the leading premium Italian brand in the United States.
