Lombardy – Taleggio 2.2kg

Description & Tasting Notes

Taleggio is distinguished by its deep orange rind and its bulging straw-coloured interior that matures quickly into a soft, creamy, incredibly flavourful paste. A pungent aroma comes from the sticky, washed rind that imparts savoury notes of smoked meats and mushrooms to the overall flavour of the cheese.

This Taleggio is matured in natural caves in the Valsassina region – the original birth-place of this cheese (the Taleggio Valley lies within the Valsassina region).


Other Notes & Serving Suggestions

Taleggio is a very versatile cheese – enjoy on a cheese board with  Mustard fruits or dried muscatels. It works well with cured meats, and can be served on antipasti platters. It can also be used in recipes – to flavour polenta and risotto, on pizza with mushrooms and thyme or in a creamy sauce for gnocchi and other pasta.

Pair with medium-bodied red wines such as Pinot Noir and Sangiovese, aromatic whites such as Pinot Grigio and Riesling and artisan beers.
