Ubriaco Cheese ripening under Red Wine Pomace
Estimated price per piece
Latteria cheese, typical from Veneto area, aged at least 6 months and refined with red grapes. The color of the rind is burgundy red, because of the affinage; the paste is ivory to light straw in colour, with medium sized eyes scattered, the taste is sweet and milky, with a pleasant aroma of wine, especially near the rind.
A bath of several days in wine marc was originally a typical Veneto method for facilitating the preserving of cheeses. However, it is now used mainly as a means of giving the products a particular flavour. The practice is currently widespread throughout many areas of Italy but its origins lie in and around Treviso. Red ‘drunk’ cheese is the most classic of its kind and is made with forms of Montasio and Friuli ‘Latteria’ cheeses immersed in Merlot red wine marc. The marc is not absorbed by the cheese but its perfume penetrates it and the subsequent ripening accentuates it even more.
As the refinement is very slight and the aroma of wine is not strong at all, it is perfect as a table cheese, wit some aged red wines, spicy fig jam, dolcetto wine jelly and Homemade bread.
