Rocchetta is an Italian cheese produced in the Langhe region of Piedmont from mixed milk, using cow, sheep, and goat's milk. This Italian soft cheese has a soft bloomy rind that wrinkles increasingly as the cheese ripens. This award-winning cheese has a complex flavor with intense notes of mushrooms, earth, and fresh cream. Rocchetta has a silky and fluffy texture in the center which becomes very creamy right under the rind.
Aspect and texture: fresh, young and fluffy
Taste: surprisingly complex for a young cheese
Serve with light-to-medium red wines like Pinot Noir or a dry sparkling wine.
