Asiago d’Allevo: Aged for five months, this version of asiago begins to become fuller in flavor and develop notes of hazelnut and fruit. Excellent as a table cheese with Barolo, Asiago d'Allevo also shreds and melts well in cooked dishes. Try Italian reds like Barolo and Chianti (Sangiovese) or a rich Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Also try serving with robust, medium-aged reds, such as Barbaresco, Barolo, Barbera d'Asti, Brunello di Montalcino, Torgiano Rosso Riserva, Taurasi, Aglianico Del Vulture.
Delice des Cremiers
Delice des Cremiers is a rich, indulgent triple cream cow’s milk cheese with a soft, sweet and buttery flavor. Crème fraîche is added to the milk during the manufacturing process and gives a slight sourness and a hint of spice on the palate. It is covered in a fully white mold that will soften the outside of the cheese when allowed to ripen. A fabulously decadent cheese to go with Champagne!!
A hard textured cheese much like a Gouda cheese, with the milk proteins having broken down to provide the crystallization, a slight saltiness on the palate, a citrusy tang from the Goats milk, yet the forever prominent caramel sweetness. It is at this the end of the maturation process when the cheese is then rubbed in caramel, that the flavors give way to a cheese with a sweet salty finish.
A perfect combination with a Stout or heavy beer as the coffee/chocolate notes will blend wonderfully with the lingering sweetness.
Note: There will be additional shipping charges to gift programs sent to Hawaii, Alaska, or Puerto Rico.
