Marzolino

Product

The most classic Tuscan cheese with a characteristic shape of a squashed loaf. Its origins lie in the Chianti area but, today, it is produced in other areas towards the borders of Tuscany. This is the latest, mixed milk version although there are other, more artisan versions to be found.
