Curiosity Taleggio is a cheese of ancient origins, perhaps it was made before the X century; it was born with the need to preserve milk that exceeded family consumption, and once aged in caves or cellars, it was traded or marketed
Our selection This is a delicate Taleggio, milky and very creamy, different to the rest
Suggestions Perfect as a second dish or at the end of the meal, it is very well suited for use in the kitchen; ideal for those who do not like strong flavours

Carozzi combines his passion, the modern technology of his factory and the precious milk from the dairies of the area. In his modern factory in Pasturo (LC), the human effort is still fundamental and it focuses on the maturation of the cheese, the main activity of Carozzi business for all these years.
