More Information
Raw material Raw milk from cows raised in cowshed and fed only with hay
Appearance The rind is thin, smooth and yellowish-brownish in colour. The paste is straw yellow, without eyes, with a coarse-grained texture. Some lucky wheels develop natural blue veins that add a sweet and distinguishing note to the taste
Taste Slightly sapid, with hints of grass and notes of toasted. The taste is sweeter and with hints of cellar when the cheese develops blue moulds
Curiosity Castelmagno gets its name from a famous sanctuary dedicated to San Magno. The first historical news of its production dates back to the XII century, when the marquis of Saluzzo was usual to rent his pastures in return for wheels of Castelmagno.
Our selection We believe that this Catselmagno, aged by our friend Giorgio Amedeo, is very close to the original Castelmagno, as it was born. We like it a lot, most of all when it developes blue veins. When we visited the production area, we realized that the cheese expresses all the essences of the pastures
Suggestions Perfect in risottos or in a cheese cream to flavor a dish of ravioli. Delicious with honey

Why we chose them
Today, Castelmagno is often produced in the valley but there are still "Herdsmen" working the milk of their own cows in the pastures according to the ancient technique, like for example the ones located in the Chiappi area. The huts are located at altitudes above 1600 meters where a great variety of herbs and flowers is found, the same essences that can be tasted in this extraordinary product. The cheeses are matured in damp caves at the altitude of 1900 meters, where they covered themselves with noble mould. Giorgio Amedeo, with his son Andrea, affineurs of Castelmagno have been accredited by Slow Food as manager of the Presidium of Castelmagno di Alpeggio. Giorgio decided to build a manufacturing and maturing center exactly in Chiappi, the highest village in the valley of San Magno Sanctuary, where the name of the cheese derives from. Giorgio, Andrea and all the "Herdsmen" of the Presidium are preserving the tradition and protecting the production of this ancient and noble cheese.
