More Information
Description Large-curd cheese made with high-quality pasteurized milk from high-mountain farms in the Sesto Pusteria area
Appearance With a color ranging from light yellow to straw yellow, the cheese has multiple irregular holes, and the texture is soft, almost creamy, malleable, and delicate. It features a natural crust with a pinkish hue due to a light brushing with water, salt, and cultures, as well as aging in a cellar with high humidity. The cheese holds up to slicing but melts effortlessly in the mouth
Taste The aroma and flavor are sweet and slightly savory. The predominant notes are milky, reminiscent of fermented milk and yogurt. This cheese is particularly sought after for its inner harmony and slightly tangy character, as well as the nutty taste in the part closest to the rind
Maturing At least 8 week

Caseificio Sesto - Sesto (BZ) - Trentino Alto Adige

Why we chose them
The Cooperativa Formaggi di Sesto Pusteria Srl was founded in 1926 by 47 farmers from Sesto Pusteria, with the aim of working and marketing milk in common, which comes in large part from very steep slopes of Sesto, in order to obtain a better profit and at the same time prevent the abandonment of mountain farms. The quality of the milk and the long experience are the basis of their South Tyrolean specialities. Caseificio Sesto produces various types of cheese according to ancient recipes and traditional craftsmanship, using controlled milk and fresh day. One of their most popular cheese is the Almkase Sextner
