Dolomitico is a semi-hard blue cheese prepared with pasteurized cow's milk. It is aged for a minimum of 50 days during which the wheels are washed in both barley malt and double malt beer from Italy’s Dolomite region. The beer wash gives the cheese a dark brown rind beneath which lies a dense, crumbly paste with blue veins. Flavours are intense and persistent with toasty notes. Pair it with a light beer or a stout.
