The name Oro Rosso - Red Gold comes from the products used to carry out the maturing of the cheese. These pure cow's milk cheeses are placed in barrels and covered with a ruby sweet wine native to the Veneto region and left for about 30 days.
Once removed they are covered with blueberries, blackberries, currants (also called 'red gold') to create the colour and rarity before being left to mature. In this way the fruits in contact with the wet rind release all their fragrance and blend with the taste and smell of the sweet wine.
The cheese has an intense flavour with a hint of the wine, pleasantly sour and with colourful streaks of bright red tending towards purple. It is delightfully creamy and melts in your mouth.
