Il Canestrato

Ripened sheep's milk cheese

Il Canestrato is a cheese with a tradition originating in southern Italy. The sheep milk cheeses produced in these areas are particularly rich in aroma and the method of production requires long procedures such as washing and oiling which in some cases are done by hand.

We wanted to bring back a part of these historic traditions, adapt them and combine them with our local traditions to create a great semi-cooked cheese with a strong flavour.
