Blu '61 is an Italian soft blue cheese prepared with pasteurized cow's milk. The cheese was created in 2011, as a 50th anniversary gift to company owner Antonio and his wife Giuseppina.It is aged over three months during which the wheels are matured in local Raboso Passito IGT wine and cranberries. With a soft and creamy paste, and a thin red rind layered with berries on top, Blu '61 has a very striking, distinctive appearance. Aromas are of typical blue cheese but are accompanied by sweet and fruity scents of cherry. The pervasive wine flavour balanced by the creaminess of the paste, creates an intensely luscious cheese that goes well with a sweet Italian Passito or any another dessert wine.

Light colour with frequent streaks and pockets of mould blue. Purple in the exterior. Very creamy melting in the mouth texture. Mild blue taste with sweet fruity honey flavour. Intriguing.
