An very rare and traditionally made version of this popular Calabrian cheese. It is sharp, spicy, and crumbly and made from the raw milk of the Podolica breed of cattle.
Caciocavallo actually means “horse cheese” owing to the fact that pairs of the gourd-shaped cheese are tied together & hung over wooden rods as they age, as if straddling a horse.
Unlike other Caciocavallos, flavours are intense in this handmade, long-aged version with herbal notes balanced by fruit and tang.
Pieces are approximately 100 g. (Note: product photos are not intended to depict any particular size wedge.)
