“LA CASTANA” – The Chestnut raw cow’s milk with Maron Glaces
This cheese also received its first recognition even before it was put on the market, i.e. the first cheese made for trial in 2017 was entered in a national competition called “CRUDI IN ITALIA”, which covers all cheeses made with raw milk. So, this competition took the first prize and the special mention for its complexity of aromas.
The name “La Castana” comes from the fact that there are chestnuts, or Maron Glacees, but also because thanks to the water in which it is subjected to rum and cocoa, takes a brown color.
It has a compact and soft structure, moist and at the same time crumbly inside, it creates a bit of difficulty to cut since it will always be served with a piece of brown and possibly the outer part or under crust that came more in contact with the rum and cocoa.
A cheese with 4 flavours, well defined and marked. The paste is very savoury, with sensations both lactic and animal and vegetable, the rum gives the acid part, the cocoa the bitter part and the browns that are a very sweet contrast rebalance everything.
A cheese to be enjoyed without a doubt at the end of a meal, if you like, instead of a dessert, with a fine dessert wine to accompany it.
We like to call it also a cheese for meditation, given its pleasantness, even for an after-dinner, can also hold up spirits.
Who knows if there is in the head, after the chestnut to make even …. The Blonde, The Brunette and The Red!
It has no crust so you can eat everything safely, indeed it must be used the care to taste a piece of cheese with each piece of brown.
