The “Podolico” Caciocavallo – Cheese
From prized milk cow, from wise processing, the dosage of the times, by tradition, jealously guarded, born the Caciocavallo Podolico. It is a hard cheese with an intense flavor and a hint of herbs, flowers and spices. The Caciocavallo, protected by Slow Food, is so called because this cheese, matured in caves, is tied in pairs and hung astride a stick with a rope of rushes. The exceptionality of Caciocavallo Podolico comes from the particular milk used, produced in very few quantities and only in a particular period of the year from Podolica cows, a breed rare and confined to a few areas of the south of Italy. It is recommended for those who love the unique flavors.
