ecco-domani-zp-design-2016-tablescapeEcco Domani, an Italian wine brand with wines from the three regions in Trentino-Alto Adige, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Veneto, experienced cooler than usual temperatures throughout the summer, but did not let it effect this 2013 pinot grigio. This wine offers light citrus aromas, delicate flowers, and is crisp and refreshing. With a few weeks left of summer, it’s time to step up your cocktail game and beat this heatwave! 

Ecco Domani’s limited edition summer label is designed exclusively by Zac Posen to help commemorate their 20th Anniversary.  The bottle design was inspired by a celebratory print from his 2016 Resort Collection.  The limited edition label will be available in select retailers and fashionable tables through late September.
