Pasteurized – Cow’s Milk
Taleggio is a cheese that has been around a very long time, since the 10th century. The cheeses are parallelepiped and oblong in shape. The rind is thin, with a soft consistency and naturally pink in colour. It has a typically grey and green/ light sage coloured mildew.The dough is uniform and compact, and is softer beneath the rind and at the end of maturation. The centre of the cheese is more crumbly. The colour varies from white to straw-coloured, with a few small marks.The taste is sweet, with a slightly acidic, lightly fragrant taste – sometimes with an aftertaste of truffles.
