Another delicious blue cheese made with cow’s milk this time, the Blue D'Alpe. This blue cheese, with a flowery crust of velvety white mold, a soft texture, pleasantly yielding to the palate, with a complex and an enveloping taste with a light spicy note. Delicious.
The Blue d’Alpe blue cheese has an extraordinary aromatic complexity and it matches meditation wines and the most extraordinary spirits, including our Brandy Riserva or grappa.
The artisan who made it
The La Poiana Cooperative was created in 1982 from a group of artisan cheese makers with aim of producing and promoting local cheeses, cheeses from the so called Grana Valley, from the famous Italian cheese, starting with the Castelmagno, the King of the local cheeses.
La Poiana is synonymous with Castelmagno, the town and the cheese, and their story began in 1982 when the Castelmagno became a DOC protected cheese. Made with local milk produced from cows left free to graze in the green mountain pastures surrounding the town of Castelmagno, surrounded by green, the cooperative soon began producing other local cheeses, from Robiola to Pecorino. All their cheeses are made according to the tradition and made with raw, non pasteurised milk, full and rich of flavour.
