URGELIA

Cow's Milk
Spain (DOP)
Aged: 2 months

Though Urgelia, with a semi-firm texture & eyelet-dotted interior, belongs to the washed-rind family, it is a relatively tame member.  The flavor is slightly nutty, a little salty & pleasantly acidic.  This cheese brings wonderful flavor to a cheese board & makes the perfect pairing for antipasto.  Also a great melter, try it in a sauce or on a sandwich.
