BellaVitano Cheese

Regular price $11.25 Sale

Master Cheesemakers from Wisconsin have partnered with the historic Sartori family from Italy to bring great, traditional cheese to the heart of North America. 

Staff at Prairie Oils were delighted to try this light, dry and salty cheese. It is rich with a hint of sweetness. Delicious! You may notice a slight crunchy feel in texture. This crunchiness comes from calcium crystals (calcium lactate) which appear as part of the aging process. These crystals are naturally formed during the uniquely complex development that produces their signature flavours. The white spots you may see on the surface of some varieties are calcium crystals. It is a sign of a great, well-aged cheese. Enjoy!
