The origins of Valtellina Casera date back to 1500--this cheese is obtained from fresh mountain milk exclusively from the farms located in the province of Sondrio and in compliance with the production regulations. Maturing takes place in traditional “casere” or ripening facilities.
Valtellina Casera is an excellent table cheese. It can be matched with Valtellina red wines, as well as with jams and honey. It is the essential ingredient in the traditional recipes of Valtellina, such as ‘Pizzoccheri,' a classic baked buckwheat pasta dish.
