This ‘little tuma’ is made using raw cow’s milk and vegetable rennet extracted from thistles.
The texture is soft and creamy owing to a delicate cheese-making process and the cheese tends to mature more quickly just beneath the rind.
This provides deliciously fresh flavours of milk, cream, meadow grass and hay.
The rind is hand-washed in salt water producing a typical reddish coloration as ageing procedes.
Milk used: raw Piedmontese cow’s milk.
Ingredients: raw milk, salt, rennet.
Liquid vegetable rennet is used for this cheese.
