Ecco Domani Moscato toasts to “Here’s Tomorrow”



Northern Italy and Milan are one of the great art centers of world, with high fashion and innovative cuisine. I had the privilege of travelling to Milan last year during a week-long exhibition. It is very fashion-centric, yet very industrial with graffiti laden walls as far as the eye can see. But it was the food and wine that were the most memorable, from the charcuterie and cappuccinos for breakfast to the fantastic seafood, pizza, and pastas for dinner, with everything paired with the perfect glass of wine.  Since its debut in 1996, Ecco Domani Moscato echoes these fine attributes with a beautiful cobalt blue bottle and silver label. Fabrizio Gatto and his team scour Italy’s finest regional grapes to find the best, combine them into blends, and bottle in Trento, Italy.

Historically, Moscato is grown in northern Italy where cool temperatures bring out the best aromatic characteristics of the wine. The small-berried Moscato Bianco grape, also known as Moscato di Canelli, is considered the best and is used as the base of this wine. The fruit is sourced from the Friuli Venezia Giulia, Trentino and the Colli Euganei in the Veneto. Aromas of peach, apricot and mandarin orange entice the nose, while the slightly off-dry palate has bright acidity, making for a quite refreshing flavor.
