This Caciotta di Capra Foglie di Noce is a goat's milk cheese wrapped with aromatic walnut leaves, following an ancient tradition. This ancient method method originally served to protect the cheese during long journeys and during its aging period, thanks to the tannic properties of walnut leaves that prevent the rind from developing mold.
The result is a cheese that has a slightly aromatic hint of walnuts. Enjoy grated into risotto, or as part of an antipasto platter.
