Description A relatively new cheese, made with vegetarian rennet and raw cow's milk
Appearance The wheel is compact and its rind is thick; the colour of the rind is yellow to amber. The paste is compact and hard while its colour is pale- yellow
Taste At the maturity of 7 months the taste is delicately dolce, medium to the palate. The aftertaste is round, slightly salty with hints of herbs and grass
Our selection When we met Egidio and Mario we were very impressed with the enthusiasm they put into their projects and the desire to experience new things like the use of mechanical cleaning agents for milk. We propose the first long-seasoned and long-lasting cheese made with vegetable rennet Cynara cardunculus, a unique product of its kind that has caught our attention
Suggestions A different cheese for grating over pasta and risotto dishes. A nice alternative for Grana Padano PDO. Nice as a table cheese with medium bodied white wines

Fattorie Fiandino - Villafalletto (CN) - Piedmont

Why we chose them
In the eighteenth century Stefano Fiandino began the Fiandino's dairy tradition in Cuneo. Stefano was a Milan breeder and dairyman who decided to move to Demonte to continue the agricultural activity. Several generations were succeeded keeping dairy vocation up to the Great Grandfather, the beginning of the twentieth century moved the business to Villafalletto where farms are still located. But it is precisely with Egidio and Mario that there was a change. When we met the two cousins were very impressed by the enthusiasm that they put into their projects. We were won over by their butter, the 1889. But it has also affected us their desire to be known also through a vegetable rennet cheeses line. Cheeses identified by Kinara mark · Greek translation about Cynara cardunculus · cardoon used to get rennet. In fact the Kinara method involves the use of vegetable rennet instead of animal rennet.
