The Castelmagno PDO is a long-aged, semi-fat mountain cheese with a semi-hard consistency and a blue-veined appearance. It is produced in the locality bearing the same name in Piedmont. The particularity of this cheese is its production based on cow milk obtained from two successive milkings (morning and afternoon). It can be enriched with goat or sheep milk, but this can constitute up to 20% maximum. We suggest you taste it on its own or accompanied by full-bodied wines.
The Piacentinu Ennese DOP is a hard cheese, made from sheep’s milk, short or medium-aged and produced in the area of Enna, Sicily. The particularity of this cheese is in how it is produced: in fact, during processing, saffron and black pepper corns are added to the paste. This product is a cornerstone of local cuisine, ideal to enjoy it on its own.
The Pecorino Fiore Sardo PDO – Cheese from Gavoi is the only Italian PDO sheep cheese produced with raw milk. Its name probably derives from the fact that wooden caskets were used for its elaboration. These caskets were made from perforated chestnut and a flower was impressed on their bottom. This left a characteristic and distinctive mark on the cheese.
