While recently on holiday in Italy, I took several pictures of cheeses in stores and at markets including this one of Cacino Ubriaco's in store of small hilltop fortress town called Pienza, in Tuscany.

I've never heard of Cacino Ubriaco before, found only one hit on internet, looks like wine soaked.

Anyone know anymore please let me know.
