FOOD AND WINE
The pleasure of matching food and wine
An excellent dish requires a great wine. The staff of Locanda dei Cantu has a strong passion for food and wine; we wish to help our guests discover the pleasant and intense flavours of our land. Our chef Igor, in addition to preparing special dishes, will choose for you the best wine, giving you unforgettable sensations.
The territory of Bergamo has many and different facets, from the mountains with pastures to the docile hilly areas. In this territory, you can discover a strong wine tradition, with fine wines of different flavours. Located in Carona in the upper part of the Brembana Valley, Locanda dei Cantù is very proud to be able to give our guests the varieties of the wines cultivated in the province of Bergamo.
At Locanda you will find the Valcalepio Rosso DOC wine, which dry and persistent taste recalls a black cherry. With fish dishes, you can enjoy the Valcalepio Bianco DOC wine that has a dry and harmonious flavour and a delicate and fruity aroma.
From aromatic red berries, carefully selected, the Moscato di Scanzo wine is born, with its harmonious flavour and almond aftertaste. From these dried raisins the Valcalepio Moscato Passito DOC wine is born, with its harmonious flavour and intense perfume. At Locanda dei Cantù you will be able to taste these wines, combined with seasoned or grassy cheeses, or the “cantucci” and our characteristic “baci di polenta”, an invention of the chef Igor.
At Locanda you can also taste the best wines of Italian and foreign tradition and of the lands of Franciacorta. It’s always the right time to celebrate!
Wine is sunlight, held together by water
