Estivo Cheese


estivo 1A pasteurized cow’s milk cheese that has been aged for 100 days in oak barrels with hay, mint, verbena and chamomile, made in Vento Italy.  Estivo is fruity and full flavored with a lingering finish. We matched it with a Pinot Grigio and a fresh pasta salad with a light pesto sauce and sundried tomatoes. An amazing mix of flavors that left us all wanting more.

This cheese would also be great with a Riesling some nice crackers, cerignola olives and crisp apples.
