  • 100% pasture fed goat’s robiola

100% pasture fed goat’s robiola

Product

In the area around the Piedmont municipality of Roccaverano in the Langhe, a mixed, sheep, cow and goat’s milk, dairy Robiola is produced.  However, the traditional 100% goat milk version, although both versions has domination of protected origin (DOP) status, has been selected by Guffanti because it is produced by small artisans using the milk of exclusively pasture fed animals. It is also eaten fresh but its flavour is enhanced by a ripening of even more than one month.
