Creamy. Luxurious. Heady
Origin: Italy, Veneto
Style and Texture: Strong blue, creamy
Milk Treatment: Raw
Drink: Dessert wines
Decadent wine-soaked blue cheese made from raw ewes’ milk. The wheels spend about 3 weeks bathing in a sweet wine from Sicily, which infuses the paste with heady honeyed notes. Basajo seduces with its velvety texture and mellow fruitiness, without the saltiness and strong bite.
Accompany with ripe pears and a dessert wine with a comparably full body, such as Sauternes or Passito di Pantelleria.
