Since we were introduced to Sartori cheeses a a year or two ago, it has quickly become one of our favorite creameries here at BK’s Vineyard Market. In the past we’ve had BellaVitano Gold be a popular cheese of the month, and have built a following around BellaVitano Espresso and BellaVitano Merlot. This month, we’re bringing you another winner from Sartori for our featured cheese of the month–Sartori’s Basil & Olive Oil Asiago.
Aged for a minimum of six months, this Asiago is hand rubbed with olive oil and basil to create a unique and delicious flavor combination that instantly transports you to Italy. This is the perfect cheese to sit and munch with some olives, crusty artisan bread, and a glass of Santa Silvana Chianti Classico 2009. Likewise, grate this cheese over some angel hair pasta tossed with some olive oil.
Sartori Basil & Olive Oil Asiago will be featured for the month of June at your local Bottle King Vineyard Market.
