Sartori Bellavitano in Merlot

Sartori Bellavitano in Merlot

Bellavitano is a very complex cheese to say the least.  A firm looking cheese with a hard purple exterior.  Once you crack the Merlot washed cheese, you find a nice crumbly curd interior, yet smooth feel to the touch. Aromas of Merlot fill your nose as your draw the cheese closer to your mouth.  The initial flavor is slightly salty with a robust flavor, reminiscent of hints of Parmesan and aged Asiago with their granular characteristics that carry an almost sweet and spicy tone.  Perfect pairing with our V. Sattui Napa Valley Merlot!!
