Salva Cremasco DOP

Luigi Guffanti 1876

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 aromatic traces when ripened at length.
