At the end of the ageing process, the cheese turns a vibrant purple. Holes are pierced through the upper part of the rind to allow the Enantio wine to penetrate inside creating violet veins in the cheese and a unique flavour. The taste is strong with a distinctive aroma conferred by the wine in which it is soaked. It can become slightly sharp over time.
Interesting fact: the Affogato di Sabbionara cheese wheels are turned upside down every day during the ageing process to make sure the wine is absorbed uniformly by the cheese.
