Briscola is an Italian semi-hard cheese prepared with pasteurized cow's milk. It is aged over four months during which the wheels are immersed in Barbera wine and marc, giving the cheese a purple rind that covers a paste with sporadic eyelets.

Medium intense, slightly spicy, with a pleasant fruity aftertaste, aromas of Briscola are reminiscent of cherries and pepper with a slight hint of buttermilk and hay. Pair the cheese a Barbera or a Sauvignon Blanc.
