The folks as Sartori told us that their Bellavitano cheese, an original creation, was difficult to explain. This is undoubtedly true on one hand (the texture is unique), but it is also has some familiar flavors that help a taster get a handle on its essence.
Bellavitano has some of the flavor of an aged cheddar, but the texture is much softer, like a young cheddar with a slight crumble to it. It also has notes of aged parmesan that meld perfectly with the aged cheddar taste. This is a great all-around table cheese; it would please cheese gourmets and casual snackers alike.
Update, 05/13/08: A store in Cleveland, Ohio refers to Bellavitano as simply “the cheese.” It also calls it “the most fabulous cheese you will ever eat.” The page is worth checking out for the description alone.
