Carboncino – Italian Cheese

(1 customer review)

£6.00 Per 200g

A delicious creamy cheese, Carboncino’s mixed milks give it a hint of goat cheese and a soft texture.

Made in traditional Italian creameries using modern methods, its light taste is soft and milky.

The edible light rind with a charcoal-ash coating produces a varied texture to match its unique flavour.

Flavour Profile

Carboncino’s yielding texture comes from its soft, milky interior and its firm, edible rind. You’ll taste the mixed milks it’s made with (cow’s, ewe’s and goat’s) that taste light and subtle when the cheese is young, intensifying as it matures.

Drink pairing

We pair ours with a medium-bodied dry rosé, such as the Italian Bardolino Chiaretto. Its juicy berry notes balance the soft texture of the cheese well.

About the producer

Caseficio dell’Alta Langa in Piedmont, Italy produce traditional cheeses, like this Carboncino, in a modern way, working closely with local farmers and producers. They wash the rind of this cheese in brine, ripening it in airy cellars before adding a charcoal ash coating to finish.

How to enjoy

Carboncino is perfect enjoyed alone as an after-dinner cheese. The rind can also be eaten if you choose for a complete varied texture combination.

    A really delicious soft, creamy cheese. Mild but flavoursome. Good with a light red wine such as Valpolocella.

Our utmost concern is get you the right cheese in the right condition right to your door. With that in mind please allow 3-5 working days for your cheese box to arrive.

However the package will be posted on a next day service so as not to spend too much time in transit. Each package will come with a gel ice pack to keep the temperature in the box as low as possible.
