This cheese inherits its name from the gorgeous Alta Badia valley in the heart of the Dolomite mountains. It's made with fresh, whole milk from selected dairy farms. After it's ripened for 180 days, Alta Badia procures its light brown rind and closed-textured consistency. The inside is straw-colored, flavorful and aromatic. It is used frequently in local dishes as a melted or table cheese. It pairs well with wine, especially light, fruity, red wines native of the Schiava region. Made from pasteurized cow's milk.Photo depicts whole 18 lb. form of cheese.We cut and wrap this item by hand.
Parmigiano-Reggiano is a delicious, full-flavored eating cheese. It began life seven centuries ago in the Italian provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, part of Bologna and part of Mantua. Nature blessed this zone with the most idealistic cattle grazing land to create the unique milk from the "Zone Tripica". The local cheese craftsmen took it from there, utilizing a totally natural process that has not changed for 700 years. No additives, no machinery, no gimmicks. Just sweet, fresh milk in its pristine state, the artisan's ancient skills, and then nature's own good time (aged from 18 to 36 months). Parmigiano Reggiano Stravecchio is aged a full 36 months. At this age, it has a deeper, golden color, and has even more crunchy crystals. Full and fruity with a slightly salty tang, this cheese should be served in chunks with figs or pears or as an appetizer with aperitifs.Made from unpasteurized cow's milk.Whole form is 80 lbs.We cut and wrap this item by hand.

Montasio Festivo is rubbed with an ancho chile/olive oil paste to form a thin, dark-red rind, whilst also lending the cheese an unmistakable aroma.

Manchego is Spain's best-known sheep's milk cheese. It is named for the province where it is made-La Mancha, home of Don Quixote. However, it is not as flamboyant as the old windmill fighter. It remains relatively sweet and mild at any age with a touch of salty nuts. Manchego was originally made to barter at livestock markets and it provided durable food for the shepherds who accompanied their flocks on their long annual migrations in search of good pasture. During the ripening period the surface becomes covered with a greenish-black mold. Some cheeses have this rubbed off before they are sold. The deep ivory paste is firm, compact, and perforated with tiny holes. It has an aromatic smell with a hint of butterscotch. This effect is strengthened on the palate together with some nutty tones. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
