This Casatica di Bufala is named after one of the entrances to the Quattro Portoni dairy's hometown of Cologno al Serio. This soft-ripened cheese highlights the best qualities of the fresh buffalo milk, while the shape and size help to give this cheese its best shelf-life and aid the development of the bloomy white rind, which contributes to the cheese’s beautiful appearance and delicate flavor. Sweet and creamy with a slight tang in the finish, enjoy this cheese at room temperature as part of an aperitivo board with crackers, honey, and a glass of prosecco.

The brothers behind Quattro Portoni created a sustainable farm in their hometown of Cologna al Serio in Lombardia, and overhauled their dairy to raise buffalo, now boasting upwards of 1000 buffalo on their farm. In 2006, they began producing cheese made with fresh buffalo milk, and today make over 25 varieties following traditional Lombardian styles.
