Beppino Occelli’s in foglie di Castagno (in Chestnut leaves)

cheese wrapped in chestnut leavesRegion: Farigliano, Piedmonte, Italy
Milk: Raw cow’s milk
Texture: Hard

Produced from goat's or sheep's and cow's milk in quantities that vary according to the availability of the season, this cheese is left to age for about a year and a half. The wheels are then wrapped in chestnut leaves which transform them and imbue them with a strong and exceptional flavour. Sharp with a brown sugar finish; Dense and fudgy, sweet and satisfying. It pairs well with important Langa wines but is ideal with important dark craft beer too.
