This Alta Badia cheese is a hard cow's milk cheese typical of the Alto Adige region in northern Italy, taking its name from the valley of the Dolomite mountains from which it comes. Enclosed in a firm, rustic rind, the inside of the cheese is pale yellow in color with a solid, consistent texture. The flavor of the cheese is intense and complex, with milky, toasted, long-lasting notes.
Enjoy on its own as part of an antipasto board, served with a fruit-forward red wine.
