This week we will be featuring select cheeses for you to come and enjoy in the Larder.
To start we have Il Nocciolo!
Il Nocciolo may look like a large ice cube, but under that thin bloomy rind lays a decadent cheese made up of fresh cow, goat and sheep milk. It comes to us from Langhe, Italy. Matured for just 24 hours the fresh milks have just enough time to meld and ripen into their rich, melt in your mouth texture with a flavor that is light on the tongue. Nestled in a paper doily, much like an after-dinner petit four, this small format cheese is a perfect for two, or one if you’re greedy! It is best enjoyed with a light-bodied dry white wine, such as Gavi or Pinot Grigio.
