The name Ubriaco in Italian means drunk. This cheese is matured for one year during which it is submerged in red wine for six months. The tradition of treating and preserving cheese with wine and crushed black grape pomace goes back to ancient times. Formaggio Ubriaco was a gold winner at the world cheese awards in 2007, an accolade which was truly deserved. Beneath the wine red rind is a rustic straw coloured cheese that has been aged to perfection to develop a creamy wine like distinct aroma. The cheese is fragrant, fruity, fresh, intense and piquant. Accompany with acacia honey. Pairs well with Merlot or Cabernet. Made by Toniolo Casearia.
