After three weeks of rehabilitative care in our cheese caves, these washed rind wheels emerge fudgy, funky, and at their peak of flavor.
While some say Taleggio’s characteristic aroma stinks, we say it smells delicious.
- MILK: Pasteurized cow’s milk
- TASTING: Microscopic crystals on the rind juxtapose the interior’s fudgy, dense texture. While the paste is sweet and buttery, the rind will add a layer of funkiness for those seeking out a barnyardy thrill.
- SERVING: Serve at room temperature for a potent table cheese or melt into risotto. We love taleggio in mac ‘n cheese, and adore it paired with everything from Burgundian Chardonnay to Italian Nebbiolo wines.
- REGION OF ORIGIN: Italy
- MADE IN Italy
