Brillo di Treviso is an Italian soft cheese made from pasteurized cow's milk and aged in local red wine. The 12-14 ounce wheels are aged for a minimum of 15 days, during which they develop a delicate and fruity flavour similar to a strong fruity Italian red wine. Each wheel is characterised by a thin burgundy rind and a slightly tangy, ivory coloured paste. Ideal as a table cheese, Brillo di Treviso can also be easily melted.
