A Sartori-family original, the Bellavitano cheese is inspired by traditional, Italian farmstead cheese. Unique to Wisconsin, Bellavitano cheese features a rich and creamy texture with a great, crave-able taste reminiscent of an aged, premium Wisconsin Cheddar cheese balanced by a full-flavored Parmesan. This Bellavitano cheese is then soaked in handcrafted Wisconsin Raspberry Tart ale to give the cheese extra tang and a delicious zing. The combination of Wisconsin Cheddar cheese and Parmesan give this Bellavitano cheese a terrific texture, somewhere between creamy and rich and crunchy and granular. This Bellavitano cheese has a slight crunchy feel from calcium crystals (Calcium Lactate), which appear naturally as a part of the aging process. The unique Bellavitano cheese is created by the master cheesemakers at Sartori in Plymouth, Wisconsin, who use time-honored techniques and the highest quality milk.
