Monthly Special Cheese of August★Introducing our monthly limited edition cheese"Paglietta Mediterranea" is a soft ripened-cheese made from cow, sheep and goat milk. Made in a small artisan factory called La Bottera located in Cuneo, it is covered with orange peel and pistachio before aging. This results in a cheese with creamy texture and a mild flavour, with slight sourness from the orange peels and pistachio flavor. Enjoy it with marmalade, some fresh fruits, or honey paired with cold sparkling wine or white wine, which will be a pleasure appetizer during these hot summer days.

Mixing milk from different animals is very common in mountainous areas to supplement the yield, or to soften the particular smell of sheep or goat milk. This method gives a variation in ingredients, nutrients, taste and aroma – resulting in new types of cheese.
Soft ripened cheeses are produced by adding and growing white mold on the cheese surface. The enzyme produced by the mold breaks down the protein from the outside to the inside, giving it a soft, creamy taste.
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.
