Sartori’s Merlot BellaVitano is a unique Cheddar-Parmesan inspired Italian farmstead cow’s cheese immersed in fine Merlot wine to give it extra tang and a delicious Merlot flavor. The liquor marination adds hints of berry and plum to the nutty, fruity flavors of the rich, creamy BellaVitano. A Sartori-family original, this gourmet cheese is a celebrated silver medal winner at the 2014 World Cheese Awards. This artisan cheese tastes delicious with dried nuts, dried fruits, crusty Italian bread and crusty French bread.
