Sicily’s vibrant culture was formed over the millennia from the many different dominions surrounding this centrally and strategically situated Mediterranean island. Zappala’s ovi-caprino (sheep and goat) cheese, Il Viceré (Viceroy), echoes the confluence of distinctive influences that combine to form an original, Sicilian creation.
A custodian of Sicily’s rich dairy traditions, Zappala regards each cheese as a precious asset to protect. Il Viceré begins with the highest quality, exclusively Sicilian, pasteurized goat and sheep’s milk. The carefully crafted mixed-milk cheese is infused with whole zingy black peppercorns and exotic saffron for a Sicilian specialty with a delicate and complex balance of savory, spicy and fragrant flavors. It is not a taste that will overpower with pungency.With its rich saffron-yellow interior studded with black peppercorns, Il Viceré is as beautiful to behold as the striking land it is from.
Application: Il Viceré is perfect for a table cheese, but its refined, subtle complexities will also lend distinguished flavor to rice, grain and other cooking applications. Il Viceré adds depth to salads, sandwiches and gourmet pizza.
Pairing: Sicily’s Etna Rosso, the PDO red wine of Mount Etna based on the nerello mascalese grape, will complement the savory and spicy flavors of Il Viceré.
