“SAN TINO” – Cow’s and sheep’s milk refined with Vin Santo and Cantucci
After the prelate Cardinal, we could only think of someone higher up, a saint… then, since we are in Tuscany, why not create a cheese that is impregnated with a typical Tuscan dessert that is the combination of cantucci and Vin Santo. Many people think that we are crazy, the result, once you taste this cheese, is really incredible on the palate. This is the fourth cheese in our line of “witty” cheeses, that is, treated in a crust with spirits, however alcoholic or liqueur, inspired by a great French cheese Epoisse, we thought to offer our customers this line of cheeses that as well as good to eat, must also be fun and witty to see.
San Tino, is a cow’s and sheep’s milk cheese that is repeatedly washed with vin santo and then treated in a crust with powder of Tuscan cantucci. This unusual combination, produces a cheese that is ideal for dessert, but not only, you can also eat at the beginning of the meal and leaves at first banned, but then pleasantly impressed by the balance and appetite that we have managed to give this extraordinary cheese.
It is recommended, in order to fully appreciate its characteristics, to consume it at room temperature but leave it closed in its packaging and discard it only at the last moment before eating it and of course, the crust is edible.
