La Latteria Perenzin pays homage to Luigi Manzoni: presented, as a preview on Tuesday evening, three new dairy creations made on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the death of the illustrious scientist: organic cheese refined with Manzoni Bianco, buffalo cheese refined with Manzoni Moscato and cheese aged in Manzoni Rosso.
The “Manzoni Project” blends the history and work of oenologist Luigi Manzoni with the traditional techniques of the dairy art of intoxication, developed by the San Pietro di Feletto dairy starting from Valentino Angelo Perenzin who lived in the same period.
“It is an honor for us – declared the owner Emanuela Perenzin – to dedicate this exclusive line of drunk cheeses to Luigi Manzoni 50 years after his death and to Valentino Angelo Perenzin, both protagonists in two areas that have always traveled parallel: wine and cheese. The quality of our milk, wine and grapes used to refine our cheeses, the slow aging process which is also the secret of our dairy, the uniqueness of our microflora that dates back to the 1950s, the scent fragrant but not invasive, suitable for both traditional and contemporary cuisine, are the characteristics of the 3 cheeses made by Luca Longo, our dairyman, and by Matteo Piccoli, responsible for the drunkenness ».
The three new dairy creations:
ANNIVERSARY BIANCO – Produced with pasteurized organic milk from Veneto cows, matured for 10 months, refined with marc from Incontro Manzoni Bianco 6.0.13.
