This firm, crumbly, rich Italian cheese is made from cow and either goat's or ewe's milk -  depending on what is available at the time! This creates a truly unique wheel every time. It is then left to mature for about a year and a half and ends up with a fudgey, slightly brown coloured paste. Each shapes is then refined in chestnut leaves which transform and enrich them with a marked and exceptional taste. A beautiful combination of long lasting savouriness, slight herbaceousness and with hints of chestnut. It also goes well with great Langa wines, but also with a great dark craft beer.
