The producer

Caseificio D&D - Calitri (AV) - Campania

Why we chose them
Di Cecca dairy is located in Campania, more precisely in Irpinia (an area close to Basilicata region) in the town of Calitri, at an altitude of 700 meters above the sea. Since June 2001 the company has started producing cheeses with local milk: the dairy is managed by the family Di Cecca with the aim of promoting the local products. The cheesemakers are two brothers in law, Giovanni Di Roma e Luigi Di Cecca: "we collect the milk everyday from local farmers and everyday we produce our cheeses" they told us. The caciocavallo is produced following the traditions of South of Italy and the affinage takes place in ancient natural caves, made by stone and tuff located near the town of Calitri. Thanks to the expertise that Giovanni and Luigi developed in long years of activity, many awards have been assigned to their cheeses.
