Barricato al Pepe
Barricato al Pepe is pasteurized cow’s milk cheese made by Sergio, the famed producer of Sottocenere®. The wheels are first aged for a period of 4 months before being coated with peppercorns. It is then further aged into old oak barrels for six months, giving an excellent crumbly, delicate flavoured end product. The black peppercorns add a taste without overwhelming the buttery paste.
Barricato al Pepe pairs perfectly with an off-dry Gewurtztraminer or Riesling, or a brawny Zin.
