The nicest way to have a mid-week aperitivo for us, is a lovely glass of red wine with a bold flavor cheese. Tonight we opted for a glass of Aglianico from 2012 accompanied by a few slices of Pecorino Brigante.
Brigante is a sheep milk cheese from the Italian island of Sardinia, this pecorino cheese variety is semi-soft in texture with a pale, ivory color. Matured for about three weeks, it has a mild and creamy flavor with citrus undertones. The texture is smooth, moist, and the pleasurable sharpness is perfect when paired with red wine.
