    This piquant or “Piccante” version should be distinguished from the better known Sweet Gorgonzola. The latter version of the gorgonzola artisan cheese is soft and creamy, while the traditional version, Gorgonzola Piccante has a firmer past with less serum content. This is due to a longer ‘baking’ period given to the piccante variety.

It has a sweet and intense taste. ‘Provola’, or ‘provolone’ derive from the word ‘prova’ (test) – the sample of curd that was immersed in water to establish if the latter was hot enough for stringing out the paste. Unlike its name suggests, this cheese is produced...

    This particular variety of Caciocavallo (considered the best and more noble example, defined by some as the Parmigiano Reggiano of the South) takes its name from the breed of cattle used for its production. The cows live in a free-range condition, feeding on strongly aromatic grasses such as wild fennel, liquorice and laurel bay whose perfumes are...

    The name derives from the fact that it was once produced to ‘save’ ("salvare") excess milk – in particular that already used for extracting the cream in order to make butter – from the animals feeding in the rich water meadows in southern Lombardy. This cheese is compact, dry, and the colour is ivory with few holes. The taste is fresh and sharp with more...

    More than having a single, precisely defined characteristic, Piedmont Toma represents a family of products with a variety of characteristics. They range from the use of both whole milk and skimmed milk and ample freedom of size and external aspect. One thing is certain however: the milk must be exclusively cow’s milk. This is a certified DOP cheese.

    The name of this cheese derives from its extraordinarily strong aroma. It is ripened in caves with a high level of humidity which increases the fermentation of the cheese.  In fact, the Latin name ‘Spretz Tzaorì’, meaning ‘tasty cheese’, is used as well as the name ‘Moena Stinker’. It belongs to one of the numerous families of Trento cheeses, ‘nostrani...

    Pecorino cheese with black peppercorns is a cheese of long Sicilian tradition. While some say that the original recipe included not just the black peppercorns in the cheeses' inner core, but the skin was also lined with chopped black pepper - a different processing that allows to flavor the cheese, protecting it at the same time, avoiding the "discomfort"...

    Despite its name, today’s production of Roman Pecorino is mainly in Sardinia and only a small amount is made in Lazio (although this cheese’s origins lie in the Roman countryside) and around Grosseto.  It is most well known as a grading cheese and can be ripened over long periods of time thanks to the high level of salt.

    The most famous cheese from Friuli whose origins line in the Montasio alpine, but which is currently produced throughout the region and in a number of Veneto provinces.  The taste is sweet with traces of spices - depending on the aging period this intensity increases or decreases accoring to the lenght of ripening.

    This is a tasty cheese with genuine ingredients - made from sheep’s milk with the addition of truffle "veins" predominantly found in the cheese's paste, giving it a unique and unmistakable fragrance and flavour. The interior is delicious and firm, tipical of the pecorino cheese and the distinctive aroma is given by the presence of truffle pieces.

    Primo sale or “first salt” means that this artisan cheese has undergone a certain degree of aging. It also indicates the typical Sicilian pecorino cheese. The term primo sale, mostly used in southern Italy and Sicily, explains its Sicilian origin. Its a young cheese and has a bright white coloured and milky flavour - added pistachios give it that extra...

    Orginally from the region Veneto, Northern Italy, this cheese made from cow's milk is generally used as a "table" cheese in Italy. Appreciated by many due to its soft inner paste, generalized by large airy holes and sweet and light taste, Asiago Fresco DOP has been aged for less than 3 months.

    In the past, the city of Bra was a market where this cheese produced in the Cuneo mountains. Today, it is produced throughout the province of Cuneo. The two versions of Bra cheese were awarded DOP status in 1982. This version is younger than the traditional, longer ripened cheese and is a relatively recent innovation created in response to the increased...
