Castelmagno has been made in the mountains around Cuneo since the twelfth century. Today, its production is regulated through the DOP certification- a European Union legislation aimed to protect the traditional production of certain typical products. The DOP area of Castelmagno is restricted to Cuneo and a few of the nearby towns and villages, making its production quite exclusive and scarce. Only a few cheeses are made every year and let season in humid condition. This creates a rusty-colored mold on the rind, and sometimes for cheeses seasoned for longer than six to eight months the blue veins of mold appear in the white cheese paste, making it more similar to gorgonzola.

Caciocavallo Podolico Cheese
Caciocavallo Podolico. The Caciocavallo Podolico is considered as the king among the types of cheeses produced in the south of Italy. Our product is aged in traditional tuff caves, in the old town center of a small village called Zungoli. It is a timeless tradition, with pronounced flavors and intense smells, in order to taste an ancient product. Produced in Irpinia in the Campania Region of southern Italy, Caciocavallo Podolico is made from the raw milk of a rare breed of Italian cow - the Podolica. The Podolica's ability to adapt to the harsh conditions of this inland area is the main reason for their survival down the centuries.
Testun Goat Cheese - Piedmont
The word "testun" means stubborn in Cuneo dialect. This cheese is aptly named, as it is the most difficult to produce among all cheeses from Mondovi (Robiola, Raschera, Ormea, Valcasotto) and it is the one which requires the longest time to ripen (twelve months on average). It is made from pure sheep or goat's milk, depending on availability, although sometimes a little cow's milk is added as well. Whichever milk is used, it all comes from animals that graze freely on alpine pastures, lending the cheese the perfumes of wildflowers and grass. Depending on the meadows and the season, the cheese can take on the aromas of thyme, chamomile, mint, licorice, or caramel. During its aging, Testun acquires extraordinary characteristics and becomes a great cheese. Its color is straw-yellow and its consistency is slightly crumbly.
