Montagnolo Affine (Germany)

Montagnolo Affine is a triple crème soft cheese that is surface ripened and is marbled with blue veins, with a grey natural crust. It combines the texture and rich tastes of a triple-crème cheese, with the distinct and lightly biting flavour of a blue cheese. Rich and decadent, Montagnolo has buttery slightly piquant taste that pairs well with medium to full-bodied wines such as Pinot Noir. Montagnolo Affine recently won the Supreme Champion award at the 2013 International Cheese Awards, also taking second prize as well, beating more than 3900 other cheeses in the process and has deservedly won numerous other prizes and medals.
