Made with raw cow’s milk.
This is a small, yet very flavoursome cheese with a delightfully soft texture produced by frequent rinsing of the cheeses in salt and water.
This treatment also aids the ageing process producing the typically reddish rind.
The origins of this special little cheese are to be found in traditional recipes belonging to medieval Piedmontese monasteries.
