His hands-on philosophy continues to find the perfect balance between ancient tradition and modern innovation with every unique Perenzin creation.
Ubriaco Capra Prosecco is a stunning, handcrafted goat cheese matured in Prosecco, one of the Veneto’s most famous wines. The marc (grape must or skins) of the wine distinguishingly covers the thin rind of the cheese. Inside, the semi-hard, moist, ivory-colored paste is uniformly textured with few eyes and possesses an enchantingly sweet taste with delicate Prosecco overtones. Ubriaco Capra Prosecco finishes with a complex sweetness, elongated even further by the wine’s lovely perfume.
Exceptional and original, Capra Prosecco combines the age-old art of “drunken cheese” with a sophisticated fresh flair.
Application: A superb, elegant table cheese, Ubriaco Capra Prosecco is best enjoyed simply alone. Try with thinly sliced, crusty bread, fine water crackers, or dried fruits, fruitcakes, fruit jams and nuts that will enhance the cheese’s sweet character.
Pairing: Prosecco is of course the front-runner for pairing with the cheese, but other sparkling, non-vintage dry wines will work very well. If you are not partial to bubblies, then try the other famed white wine of the Veneto, Pinot Grigio.
