2) Cova Ristorante & Caffee, The Authentic Italian Cuisine

COVA signature homemade lasagna with minced Wagyu beef pairing with a glass of Real Compania de Vinos Tempranillo Vino de la Tierra de Castilla, Spain, 2016. Lasagna is one of the most appreciated symbolic dishes from Italy, it brings together the ingredients we love – pasta, cheese, fresh herbs and most importantly, a delicious meat sauce. To enhance the meat sauce flavor, COVA improves and re-energizes the traditional Italian lasagna recipe with Wagyu beef, one of the most famous types of beef and prized around the world for its remarkable flavor and texture. The selected Spain red wine has a bold, medium tannic, moderate acidity and dry taste. With a combination of oaky, black fruit and red fruit notes. Wagyu beef has a high fat content and with the unique characteristic of this red wine, the dryness and acidity of the red wine can cut through the fat of the beef, providing a well-balanced tasting experience.
