Goat cheese is characterized by its slight acid and a refreshing taste, as well as by its brittle and fragile texture. Goat milk contains smaller fat globules compared to cow’s milk, making it easy to digest.
Cheeses are classified into soft, semi-hard, and hard cheeses depending on their water content. The soft cheeses are only briefly aged (mainly less than a month) giving them a soft texture.
In this mountainous region, traditionally long-term aged cheese and mountain cheese mixed with cow, sheep and goat milk are eaten. There are also cheeses flavored with truffles (a specialty of Piedmont) as well as herbs and flowers from the mountains. As the king of wine Barolo is also produced in this area, a rarity such as the Piemontese Castelmagno goes well with heavy red wine.
