Ecco Domani Moscato 2011
Harvest took place in the middle of September 2010. The Tre Venezie is made up of three smaller growing regions: Trentino Alto Adige, Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia. With a climate known for "cool nights and warm days," conditions here are conducive to exceptional grape maturation. Ecco Domani meticulously selects grapes from within these premier regions to create full-flavored wines with superb colors and wonderful aromas, backed by fine levels of intensity.
Moscato has a long history of growing in northern Italy where the cool temperatures are ideally suited to bringing out the best characteristics from this aromatic variety. While there are many sub-varieties of Moscato grown in the world, it is the small-berried Moscato Bianco grape, also known as Moscato di Canelli, that is considered best and it forms the base of this wine along with the sweet Moscato Giallo. The fruit is sourced predominately from the Friuli Venezia Giulia with a portion from Trentino and the Colli Euganei in the Veneto. Lovely aromas of peach, apricot and mandarin orange entice the nose, while the slightly off-dry palate has bright acidity to make this wine so refreshing.
