Taleggio Soft Cheese
Soft, Italian, cow’s milk cheese that has been aged for a couple of months. During the ageing they washed the rind in saltwater to add a lovely crunch.
It has a pungent aroma, married to a fruity and mild flavour with a slight tang.
This cheese gives a texture experience as once you get to the middle it is lovely and smooth.
Flavour Profile: With this cheese you’ll be getting a beautiful compilation of fruity, mild and tang matched with a strong aroma that plays with the taste buds. This is an excellent cheese with fantastic features!
Drink Pairing: We love this with a rose. Try something light with a slight sweetness such as Monte Del Fra, Bordelino. You won’t regret it!
About the Maker: Named after the caves of Val Taleggio. It’s one of the oldest soft cheeses produced in autumn and winter. During cheese making, the acidic milk is brought to the lab and kept on the wood shelves in the chambers as well in caves according to tradition. In order to prevent it from mould infestation, the cheese is washed with seawater once a week. The maturation takes 6 – 10 weeks forming a thin crust.
How to Enjoy: This is a wonderful melting cheese. It is amazing in a toastie with pesto, but works really well in a pasta dish or as an antipasti with some autumnal fruits
