Wine of the Week - Ecco Domani 2007 Merlot

Ecco Domani was one of the first wines I ever had, period. For this reason alone, it will always hold a special place in my heart. But as I progressed on my wine journey, sampling a wide array of labels, Ecco got left behind. Having gone several years without tasting it, I wanted to see how my palate reacts to it now.


Poorly. Unfortunately, Ecco Domani doesn't hold up to close scrutiny. It lays dull on your tongue on first taste, and leaves a harsh acidity on the back of your throat at the end. Overall, this is a flat and lifeless wine.

But for pure nostalgia, I will always view the label favorably.
