A Casinca is one of the most prominent soft washed-rind cheeses in the Mediterranean island of Corsica that is produced all year-round.
It is a classical cheese made from milk of Corsican goats that roam freely in the large landscapes in the central area on the island – filled with an abundance of natural herbs and maquis bushes – thus infusing their milk with various natural and sharp aromas.
Tasting Notes of A Casinca
A Casinca is an exotic cheese with a rich and pronounced nutty taste (due to the ripening and the gentle climate in the region) with definitive goaty flavours.
It also has a strong smell but this cheese is by no means unrefined.
