"Il Noce" Affinato

Sheep's milk cheese ripened in earthenware jar with walnut leaves

Il Noce is the result of an old technique of maturing that we rediscovered thanks to our research work.

The maturation in jars enables the cheese to give its best, offering unique distinctive aromas and fragrances.

This expertly matured sheep milk cheese is placed together with fragrant walnut leaves in large earthenware jars which are then hermetically sealed. On warming it slowly exhausts the oxygen present and undergoes a characteristic gentle fermentation. This process makes the cheese moist, delicately fragrant, with a full rich flavour that will delight the palates of connoisseurs.

“Il Noce” should be tasted with a few walnuts to enhance its flavour.
