Ubriaco Prosecco is a raw cow’s milk cheese made in northern Italy’s Veneto region, home to Prosecco sparkling wines. Termed “drunken cheese,” it is covered by Prosecco grape skins and wine during the maturing process, which give the cheese a sweet, delicate aroma and a complex finish.

Ubriaco is matured for at least two months but usually not more than a year. When mature, it has a soft texture, which ages to become firmer and crumbly, similar to a Parmigiano.  Ubriaco is best served in crumbles or shavings with a glass of Prosecco or any aged, red wine.
