CACIOCAVALLO

Cow's Milk
Italy 
Aged: 4-6 months

Caciocavallo’s unique shape is also the source of its name which translates to “cheese on horseback”: it’s tied and hung over wooden barrels to drain.  This technique allows the cheese to engage in a 360° aging at all times.  A pasta filata (spun pasta) cheese, its texture is like a firm mozzarella and its taste can develop into earthy, fruity flavors.
