Taleggio La Baita DOP

Region: Lombardia

Raw material: Full cream cow's milk. Taste: Sweet, and slightly acid and aromatic, sometimes with an after taste of truffels. Curios facts: Taleggio is an antique cheese, maybe before the X century. The area of it's origin is Val Taleggio, from where it gets it's name, in the province of Bergamo. The people of this valley had the need to preserve the left over milk and started to produce a cheese that once aged in grotto's or mountain huts could be exchanged with other products or sold. With the growth in Taleggio consumption, the production has spread to the Padana plains where many dairies, small to medium, have managed to equilibrate the productive technology with the traditional one that has almost a thousand years of tradition.
