About Enoiteca Il Calice
A couple of hundred metres away from Ku'damm (Kurfürstendamm) – ”the Champs-Élysées of Berlin” – is Il Calice, located on a square, as if you were in Italy. Il Calice is your Italian specialist in Berlin, with great trattoria-style food and a mainly Italian wine list.
Owner Antonio and his team have really managed to recreate a bit of Italy in their store, where some staff members speak both Italian and German, and some speak English.
About the Enoiteca Il Calice Wine List
If there is a place outside Italy you need to go to for your Italian wine knowledge, it’s Il Calice. Nitya, the sommelier, and owner Antonio have put together a wine list with a focus on Italian wines, and a lot of the wine is imported directly – like some rare vintages from Ca del Bosco Franciacorta or Bruno Giacosa.
You'll also find some great examples of German wine on the list. Italy is full of indigenous grapes, and you might find many of them here. And even if you don’t find what you are looking for, Nitya will point you in the right direction and find you the right glass or bottle.
