Description: A firm cow's milk cheese from the highlands of Lombardy with a sweet flavor from being washed in young Chianti.
It is said that this cheese was drowned in wine to hide it from the tax man who went from house to house to tax farmers on the cheeses that they made. Cheese makers hid the cheese in their wine barrels to save some money. How lucky are we?Mignucci
A raw cow's milk cheese from Lombardy, Ubriaco del Piave is immersed in a young Chianti when it is young. This gives the otherwise sharp cheese an almost candy-sweet flavor as well as its name, which means drunk, in Italian! The cheese has a dense, creamy texture with a slight grain to it. Ubriaco has hints of dark chocolate and a slight spiciness, which add to its complex flavor. We recommend this cheese be enjoyed simply, because with this much flavor in one cheese, adding anything else would be unnecessary.
