Country of Origin: Italy
Region: Piedmont
Type of Milk: Cow
Flavor Profile: Medium

Castelrosso (also known as Toma Brusca) is made using the milk of the Pezzata Rossa and Bruno Alpina cows and is aged in underground cellars for at least three months (ours tend to be aged a bit longer). The cheese develops a crusty rind that is mottled with grey, white and yellow molds. The rind contrasts beautifully with the interior which is pure white. The aroma is earthy and lactic, the texture is moist but slightly crumbly and the flavor is a balanced combination of milky flavors and lemony brightness. As it ages, the interior will darken from the outside edges toward the interior and those sections will give bigger flavors of nuts and earth.
