Taleggio Cheese

Taleggio is a smear-ripened Italian cheese named after the caves of Val Taleggio. It’s one of the oldest soft cheeses produced in every 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 mold infestation, the cheese is washed with seawater once a week. The maturation takes 6 - 10 weeks, forming a thin crust.

This cheese has been granted a DOP designation and contains 48% fat. The cheese has a strong smell, but its taste is relatively mild with an unusual fruity tang. To make it brighter and moderate, factories add spices, raisins, nuts and some lemons to it. 

Pairs well with big Italian red wines, and also a wide range of reds and whites. Makes an excellent table cheese, and can be cubed on salads such as radicchio and rucola, and melts well.
