Casa Madaio Calcagno
The hills around the island of Sardinia are home to a number of small sheep farmers, whose flocks graze on the wild herbs and grasses that grow there. The gentle floral, herbal flavors shine through this cheese's brothy notes, revealed in layers of the flaky paste.
Just the Facts
GinWhen picking out a cheese to nibble on while you sip your favorite gin cocktail, think bright and springy. Something fresh that will bring out the spirit’s citrusy, botanical notes.
RoséWe love them all! Everything from light, crisp Provence style to deep and fruity Spanish Rosados. Don’t be afraid to enjoy rosé year-round, but we like the summer staple best with refreshing, mild cheeses that are great in warm weather.
Pair with: Young chevres like Coupole and bloomy rinds like Moses Sleeper for the lighter stuff. A darker, fruitier rosé can stand up to a heavier cheese like nutty Pecorino Oro Antico. Sparkling rosé is a perfect match for Nettle Meadow Kunik.
Sparkling WineChampagne, Cava, Prosecco, anything with bubbles!
Pair with: The effervescence of Sparkling Wines makes for a great pairing with richer, fattier cheeses that coat the mouth: think La Tur and Brunet, or a triple creme like Brillat Savarin or Delice de Bourgogne.
