It is produced using white grape Must, acetified and aged in oak barrels to get its typical amber colour. Its most striking feature is that it does not alter the colour of dishes but it adds a fruity and mildly acid aroma and flavour (excellent to replace wine vinegar).
The relatively short maturation of this cheese demonstrates its consistency in the palate softy and creamy. This cut-cheese of natural fresh milk owns a yellowish bark and a tender-yellow dough with irregular punching. Smell and taste are intensely aromatic.
The Schiava grape varietal and all of its variations are exceptional traditional vines this area which are meeting with ever more success. This wine has a fine, delicate, harmonious and velvety aroma. It is a lively, young and inviting red that can be served on any occasion.
