Umbriacone Cow

Veneto, Italy

An affectionate term in Italian for the “great big drunk.” A delicious cow’s milk cheese bathed in a mixture of local Clinton and Raboso wine, it is then pierced like a gorgonzola to let the aroma and flavor of the wine permeate the cheese to a new degree. It is sharp and fruity on the nose.  The pliable paste with a slight crumble is not only visually stunning, with its purple-hued striations, but it also contains a nutty flavor that is quickly followed by a bright winey finish. The cheese is covered with grape leaves to cover the holes of the piercing so that mold will not grow in the holes.
