L’Antica Cascina are best known for their Formaggio di Fossa Sogliano PDO. However, the discovery of dozens of ancient wine barrels in the cellars of Villa Corte lead to the revival of an old local recipe.
The result was this ewe’s cheese, wrapped in hay and aged in the barrels.
The young cheese is wrapped in spring hay which imbues the nutty sweetness of the cheese with the aroma and taste of wild flowers, and grasses of the alpine meadows.
How to Enjoy (PAIRING)
