SMOKED PROVOLA CHEESE AND WINE PAIRINGS

Bortigali Smoked Provola cheese is made of cow’s milk, with a soft, compact, and hand-spun paste straw-yellow in colour, with a sweet taste enriched by the unmistakable aroma of smoke.

If you prefer to try it on its own, try serving it in little slices and pair it with a still, medium-bodied white wine or with a dry wine.
