The grapes for Mia Dolcea are carefully selected from the historic Asti region of Italy, where the history is as rich as our grapes. Located in a picturesque storybook setting, the Italian culture of the Asti province is celebrated through its delicious food, magnificent architecture and time-honored winemaking traditions.
The northern area of the province is home to an enchanting countryside dotted with medieval castles. Nestled within this majestic region - where the charming landscape meets the Mediterranean Sea and creates ideal growing conditions - are the vineyards that grow our sweet Moscato grapes.
|Wine maker notes
|Our 2011 Moscato d’Asti opens with sweet and creamy aromas of pineapple, lychee, dried apricot and honey. An elegant palate of fresh stone fruit and juicy peach gives way to floral notes of honeysuckle and jasmine. The creamy sweetness of this wine is balanced by a refreshing acidity, a delicate mouthfeel and a smooth finish.

|While much of Italy celebrates its past, northern Italy and Milan look to the future. This is where the style-setters create their art, whether it is high fashion, industrial and commercial design, cutting-edge furniture or a lighter, fresher, innovative style of cuisine. Ecco Domani, which means ”here’s tomorrow,” is part of this movement.
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 the areas, creating wines that exhibit the best that Italy has to offer. The wines are fashioned into final blends and bottled in a stunning state-of-the-art facility in Trento, Italy. ”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 Ecco Domani’s debut in 1996, it has become the leading premium Imported brand in the United States. Impact Magazine named Ecco Domani as a ”Hot Brand” for six consecutive years. The wines are currently sold in the United States, Canada and Northern Europe.
