    Description

    One of the most important and esteemed Italian cheeses, and considered the 'King of Cheese' in its native Piemonte, Castelmagno dates back to 1277! It was the first cheese in Italy to be awarded DOP status.

    This is a pressed curd farmhouse cheese which is produced from raw cow's milk which must come from a very small, designated area in the province of Cuneo. It is quite difficult to track down in the UK.

    Semi-hard, dense and crumbly, this blue cheese gets stronger and spicier as it ages. Our Castelmagno has been matured for 120 days and has a unique flavour. It is mild and nutty and has an earthy aroma.

    Unpasteurised cow's milk.

    The DOP mark: As a DOP (PDO) 'Protected Denomination of Origin' cheese, our Castelmagno has been guaranteed and certified by the Castelmagno Consortium in Italy. This is the best guarantee of excellence in a European agri-food product. Production, processing and preparation of our cheese takes place exclusively in the Castelmagno cheese DOP area of origin.

    Serving Suggestion
    Wonderful as a table cheese served with Acacia honey, Passito wine jelly or truffle balsamic glaze. Castelmagno is used in many of Piedmonte's regional specialities such as Risotto al Castelmagno.

    Storage
    Keep wrapped in naturally waxed paper in the fridge, ideally inside a slightly opened container so that the cheese still gets some oxygen. Castelmagno should keep for 10-15 days. Remember to remove from the fridge an hour or so before serving to allow the cheese to each room temperature. The rind is not edible.
