Baronerosso di Capra is an Italian semi-hard cheese prepared with raw goat's milk. It is a pressed, uncooked cheese aged for a minimum of 5 months during which the wheels are washed in Barbera d’Asti DOCG wine and marc for several weeks. It has a white, slightly crumbly paste enveloped by a dark purple flavoured rind with a persistent winey aftertaste and aromas of must and sour cherries.
Enjoy the cheese with a full-bodied red wine such as a Barbera, a Cabernet or Raboso Piave. You could also try out white wines such as Franciacorta or a Chardonnay.
