Flavour Profile: Montagnolo Affine is a German cheese that combines the rich texture and taste of a brie, with the biting nature of a classic blue. It has a sweet aroma and a beautifully soft texture. It’s a triple creamed, blue cheese that’s buttery, creamy with a very slight acidity to it.
Drink Pairing: Montagnolo Affine pairs well with medium to full-bodied wines, such as Pinot Noir.
About the Maker: The small local dairy rapidly grew into a successful business. The Hofmeister family, who took over Käserei Champignon in 1961, expanded it into a major group of companies – with a keen awareness of lasting values, innovative in their product and marketing strategies, but still retaining the culture of a family business.
How to Enjoy: This rich, buttery and little piquant cheese has amazing cooking potential, melting perfectly to a sauce like texture.
