Many of our customers wouldn’t think of an Italian dinner (or sometimes lunch) without wine to bring out the flavors of the meal. Cafe Vico, the choice of Italian restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, has an extensive wine list with an emphasis on Italian wines and also offers a wide variety of wines by the glass. Our staff can advise you and make suggestions if you want to create a mini-pairing of Italian wines and food at your table.
Cafe Vico Italian restaurant offers over 200 wines by the bottle with 55 to 60% of those being Italian wines coming from different regions in Italy chosen especially for our Fort Lauderdale guests. Our selection is heavier on the traditional Italian red wines that stand up vigorously to the savory flavors of our meals. But we also offer a strong assortment of refreshing whites to pair with appetizers or lighter entrees.
For the whites we have Pinot Grigios and Chardonnays from Italy, California and Washington State. We also have a German Reisling, some French white Burgundies including a Puligny Montrachet and Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand.
The red Italian Tuscan wines — Chianti, Sangiovese and Brunello — are probably the best known regional wines of Italy. They are made mostly from the Sangiovese grape and each wine is shaped by the climate and soil of the valley or mountainside where it is grown.
The Southern Italian wines along with those of Sicily and Campania come from grape varieties that are very old and when pressed create intense and rich wines.
The Veneto wines, from north of Venice deliver the delicious Amarone, a distinctive Italian wine made from partially dried grapes. The drying process concentrates and intensifies the natural flavors into a full-boded wine.
The wines of the Piedmont are made from two grapes, the Nebbiolo and the Barbera. These grapes give us the richly complex and deeply flavored Italian Barolo wines among others.
Cafe Vico also offers the so-called Super Tuscan wines that are blends of the traditional Sangiovese grape with either Merlot of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. This is outside the normal classification for Tuscan wines but definitely inside the description of a wonderful Italian dinner wine.
The American winemakers are not slighted on our red list. The luscious and round reds of the Russian River along with Napa and Sonoma selections are available as is wine from Washington State. We have a nice selection of West Coast Cabernet Sauvignons, Pinot Noirs, Merlots and Meritage.
We round out our red list with a few French Burgundies and Bordeaux wines, some Spanish selections and a few from Chile, Australia and Argentina.
To begin your meal you may want a cocktail and our full bar can satisfy your taste for something simple or not so simple. Try the Cafe Vico version of some classic cocktails like the Caipirinha or the Margarita or sample one of our own creations like the Cafe Vico-tini.
Our classic Dirty Martini is always a hit with guests and if you like to have your dessert before your meal, how about a Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Martini made with raspberry infused vodka, Godiva Chocolate Liqueur with a splash of Raspberry Liqueur.
Of course you could have that after dinner unless you wanted to go with the traditional Italian Sambuca or perhaps a refreshing Limoncello or glass of Port.
Naturally we have champagnes and sparkling wines from around the world including some very fine Italian Prosecco. The champagnes and a Prosecco are also available by the glass as is a sweet and sparkling red Italian Banfi wine.
