Il Predicatore is drunken cheese (ubricao) that is covered with marc of Tuscan red wine Merlot IGT while it is ripening in an oak wine barrel. The striking purple rind with grape pomace infuses the pale interior of Tuscan sheep’s milk with the extraordinary taste of wine. Indespensable for a cheese course or a cheese board. Enjoy with fresh white wine or a young rose.
Aged for 4 – 5 months.
Caseificio Maremma was founded by Fortunato Spadi in 1966 in Maremma, an area of Tuscany. Fortunato and his sons, Emanuele and Simone, still run Caseificio Maremma with innovative technology, producing traditional and new cheeses.
Maremma is based in a rural area of Italy embracing the Tyrrhenian coast and the inland hills that stretch from Massa Marittima in Capalbio and icludes the area of Monte Argentario and the islands of Grosseto, Saturnia and up to the Tufi area of Sovana, Sorano and Pitigliano. This traditional setting is perfect for rearing sheep and cattle in the wild, yielding pristine and flavorful milk for producing genuine cheese with full flavors.
