Ecco Domani Launches Frizzante-Style Prosecco with Screwcap Closure, Putting a Fresh Twist on an Italian Classic

Posted on November 11, 2014

Nearly 20 years ago, Ecco Domani introduced a modern approach to Italian wine with the debut of its Pinot Grigio in a lighter style and with a contemporary look. Launching this fall with a sleek appearance and stylish screwcap closure, Ecco Domani’s frizzante-style Prosecco offers something new once again.

All Signs Go for Prosecco
With an annual growth rate of 34 percent to 39 percent, Prosecco is the fastest-growing sparkling wine in the US . With Prosecco’s biggest gains coming from buyers new to the category, it’s a terrific moment to bring consumers a Prosecco with a distinctive, lightly efferevescent style and eye-catching look.

Ecco Domani Prosecco
Consulting master winemaker Fabrizio Gatto—whose tenure with Ecco Domani dates to the very first vintage in 1996—selected fruit for this Prosecco primarily from historic hillside vineyards along the Piave River in the Prosecco DOC. Fabrizio bottled Ecco Domani Prosecco with a neutral screwcap closure to preserve freshness and vibrancy, leaving about 2 g/100mL residual sugar for approachable character and to complement the wine’s signature softer texture.

From the team behind the nation’s leading, premium imported Pinot Grigio, Ecco Domani Prosecco is poised to deliver an exciting new take on a classic. Ecco Domani® 2013 DOC Prosecco has an SRP of $10.99 and 25,000 cases are imported.
