This goat cheese comes from the Veneto Region of Italy. It is produced in the foothills of the famous range of Mountains known as the Dolomites, specifically in the area known as Belluno Mountains, which lie due North from the famous City of Venice. Here the goats roam freely and the milk reflects the varied grasses, flowers and herbs of these rich mountain pastures. Made with pure goats milk, the cheese is first aged for a period of 3 to 4 months. It will then begin the second phase of maturing. For approximately 3 to 4 weeks the rind will be carefully cured , each cheese being individually rubbed daily by hand with the finest extra virgin olive oil, and then with large grains of fresh black pepper. This perfect blend of a very fine cheese with its delicate and never too strong aroma from the goats milk, together with the extra virgin olive oil and black pepper give us an unusual, very delicious and very interesting cheese.
Robiola Bosina is a bloomy rind, square shaped Italian cheese that is made from a blend of sheep and cows milk. Produced by the Caseificio dell`Alta Langa dairy in Piedmont, this cheese has a creamy, elastic and supple pate with a rind that is velvety and pillowy. Its appearance has a straw colored pate and a bright white rind. The cheese has full rich flavors that are earthy and mushroomy with undertones of sweetness and tanginess attributed to the sheep milk
Gorgonzola is Italy’s only blue-veined DOP cheese. At Caseificio Gelmini, Gorgonzola is handmade from start to finish. The magic begins with the purest and finest cow’s milk from Lombardy combined with a careful balance of ingredients. Each wheel is salted and turned by hand, enhancing the flavors of this slightly spicy, very robust version of the classic Italian blue. Piccante Gorgonzola features a firm interior with streaks of blueish-green veining. The hard rind, which is amber in color, protects the luscious, almost crumbly interior and its balance between sweet and savory.
