Created in Piave, a region in Veneto, where farmers originally used to preserve their cheese by immersing it in wine must. The maker of Ubriaco, which translates to¬† “drunk” in Italian, bathes the cheese for forty hours in a mix of wine must consisting of Cabernet, Merlot, Clinton, and Raboso grapes. Ubriaco has a sweet flavor, with hints of wine and a fruity flavor.
