FROM OUR CHEESE COUNTER
We have two kinds of cheese from Italy, both are totally delicious…..
The name Oro Rosso comes from the products used to carry out the maturing of the cheese.
It is placed in barrels and covered with a ruby sweet wine native to the Veneto region and left for about 30 days. Once removed they are covered with blueberries, blackberries, currants (also called ‘red gold’ for its colour and rarity) and left standing for maturing. In this way the fruits in contact with the wet rind release all their fragrance and blend with the taste and smell of the sweet wine. The cheese has an intense flavour with a hint of the wine pleasantly sour and with colourful streaks of bright red tending to purple.
Arametto: Blue cheese dipped for 2 months in the famous Italian liqueur Amaretto Di Saronno and covered with fragrant apricots. The scent of roasted almonds and brandy couple with the creaminess of the cheese, making this creation a delicious and decadent after dinner addition to your cheeseboard.
