Ubriacone®, a cheese created by Sergio Moro, is an affectionate term in Italian for the “great big drunk.” A delicious cow’s milk cheese bathed in a mixture of local Clinton and Raboso wine, it is then pierced like a gorgonzola to let the aroma and flavor of the wine permeate the cheese to a new degree. It is sharp and fruity on the nose.  The pliable paste with a slight crumble is not only visually stunning, with its purple-hued striations, but it also contains a nutty flavor that is quickly followed by a bright winey finish. The cheese is covered with grape leaves to cover the holes of the piercing so that mold will not grow in the holes. Keep the leaf in place when merchandising and cutting the cheese.

I like it. It is a little chalky, not as flavorful as I expected.
