Barricato al Pepe

Item #: 5497

This firm pasteurized cow’s milk cheese from Veneto is made by Sergio, the famed producer of Sottocenere®.  After making the cheese and aging it for 4 months, he puts the cheese in oak barrels, covering it in copious amounts of peppercorns and aging it for another 6 months.  The wine residue in the barrel enhances the flavor of the cheese, which also has peppercorns mixed into the paste. The flavor is full, round, and extremely buttery with a lovely snap to the paste all enhanced by the overall presence of black peppercorns.
