‘Shrivelled’ Paglierina


A classic Piedmont, mixed milk cheese, traditionally ripened on straw lattice-work layers. It is one of the few Italian ‘blooming rind’ cheeses or, in other words, covered by mould and white yeasts that give flavour to the cheese and are eaten together with the cheese paste. It is distinguished by the care taken in choosing the essential ingredients and for its production.
