Sartori Limited Edition Cognac Bellavitano

Cognac BellaVitano is a unique Cheddar-Parmesan inspired Italian farmstead cow's cheese aged for at least 18 months and then bathed in Rémy Martin Cognac for 7 to 10 days. A Sartori-family original, this sweet, buttery BellaVitano is a celebrated gold medal winner at the 2014 World Cheese awards. The liquor marination steeps into the edible rind and adds a smoky, nutty, oaky flavour with toasted notes of vanilla and caramel.

This artisan cheese tastes delicious with dried nuts, dried pineapple, chocolate, red grapes and crusty artisan bread. Try pairing the cheese with wines such as Pinot Noir, Merlot and Chardonnay. You can also pair beer, stout or porter with the cheese for a great combination.
