A Sartori-family original, the Bellavitano cheese is inspired by traditional, Italian farmstead cheese. Merlot BellaVitano is a unique Cheddar-Parmesan immersed in fine Merlot wine to give it extra tang and a delicious merlot flavor. The liquor marination adds hints of berry and plum to the nutty, fruity flavors of the rich, creamy BellaVitano.
This artisan cheese tastes delicious with dried nuts, dried fruits, and crusty bread. Try pairing the cheese with wines such as Shiraz, Merlot, and Pinot Noir. You can also pair India pale ale, hoppy pilsners, or wheat beers with the cheese for a great combination.
