Pepato
Pepato

In Italian, Pepato means “with pepper,” and each wedge of BelGioioso Pepato is made with a generous portion of whole black peppercorns. Our Pepato is handcrafted from fresh local milk gathered daily from our local farmers. This delicately spiced table cheese has a sweet, nutty, earthy flavor, which is brought into perfect balance during its 5-month aging.
