Basajo is an Italian blue cheese that originates from Veneto (a north eastern Italian region that includes the regional capital, Venice). The cheese is made from raw sheep’s milk and matures for 5-6 months. The natural rind is speckled with golden raisins, and the cheese spends 3 weeks soaking in a sweet Sicilian wine called Passito di Pantelleria.
