“Dante” Sheep Cheese

From what I can tell from this fuzzy image, the logo seems to be inspired by Auguste Rodin’s sculpture of a man in thought [Dante, to become the later sculpture “The Thinker”] on the top center of “The Gates of Hell” with his head replaced by a sheep.


“Made with 100% pure sheep milk and aged a minimum of six months, DANTE has a rich, nutty flavor with a firm and somewhat dry texture. DANTE complements pasta, and fruit as well as medium red wines and semi-sweet white wines.”    —Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Cooperative
