Cravot de Barbera – nicknamed Ubriaco (“drunk” in Italian) – is an aged goat’s milk cheese aromatized and matured with Barbera D.O.C. red wine. The well-balanced and rich flavor is a testament to its skillful aging process – it is uniquely aged for two months in cellars, and then two months soaked in decadent and flavorful wine. This cheese has an intense aroma, a soft and supple texture, and a sweet and fruity flavor profile. The fresh and aromatic nuances from the Barbera D.O.C. wine result in a flavorful synergy that leaves a lasting impression. Ideal pairings would be a glass of robust, full-bodied red wine such as Barolo or Barbaresco to further elevate the flavors. Accompanying this cheese with some crusty Italian bread and a side of spiced fruit chutney can create a delightful gastronomic experience that highlights the rich complexity of Ubriaco.
