Top 5 Places to Enjoy Bellacosa Cabernet Sauvignon
Before the evening starts, or after…
No.1 // Rooftop Bar, Heavy Appetizers a Must
Note from Dan: Why the rooftop? I say, “why not!?” Views from above take the conversation to another level. I suggest that you include heavy appetizers because you will be hanging out for hours. Bellacosa tends to have that effect on an evening…
Why it pairs well: Because rooftop bars elevate an evening out and Bellacosa captures the night.
No.2. // Havana Club with Live Music
Note from Dan: Live music at a Havana club after enjoying a glass – or two – of Bellacosa can ignite the magic in any evening no matter who the crowd. Of course a rum cocktail at the end of a music filled night can be a nice finale in bringing an inspired evening to a close.
Why it pairs well: A pairing doesn’t just have to be food. Wines like Bellacosa can also be a paired with an experience. Live music and the atmosphere of a Havana club makes a night out, a night to be remembered.
No.3 // Local Wine Bar
Note from Dan: I often add a wine bar to an afternoon or evening out with friends because great, well-thought-out wine bars offer an exceptional place to gather. And Bellacosa thrives in a gathering atmosphere.
Why it pairs well: Because moments matter. No matter which wine bar you decide to grace with your presence, make sure that Bellacosa is a staple wine because any other cabernet sauvignon just won’t do. If it isn’t, EMAIL ME, message me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, send a singing telegram – whatever needs to be done to get Bellacosa there! I promise to do my best to make it happen…
No.4 // Cigar Club
Note from Dan: If you visit my blog often, you will learn fairly quickly that I’m somewhat of a cigar aficionado. A great cigar paired with Bellacosa is like enjoying the many layers of a gourmet 7-layer cake individually, each with a different aperture experience. Some of my favorite cigars are Alec Bradley Prensado, Tempus and Post Embargo.
Why it pairs well: When enjoyed with Bellacosa, a good cigar can bring out the smoothness of the cabernet grape and favor your palate with lasting gratification.
No.5 // Dinner – Sushi or Tapas
Note from Dan: Even though sushi originated as a means of preserving fish in the early 8th century (I know this because I love sushi like no other), sushi as we know it today is a delicacy with flavors and textures like no other, which makes it one of the best possible pairings for Bellacosa. Tapas, on the other hand, isn’t necessarily about the textures as much as is it about enjoying many different flavors with friends. The conversations that happen while passing plates make it an experience in and of itself. Tip: Always enjoy dessert at a different location because changing your environment opens doors for different experiences to be shared amongst each other.
Why it pairs well: Plain and simple – sushi opens up your palette and tapas expands the possibilities. Add Bellacosa, a few friends and dessert, and you’ve got yourself a memorable evening.
