Why we love it

The Raschera is a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) cheese made with cow’s milk named after the alpine lake situated at the foot of Monte Mongioie.

The Raschera is produced with cow's milk and characterised by a soft texture with small, diffused holes and a sweet flavour that becomes more intense with aging.

The Raschera goes well with medium-bodied, young red wines

The artisan who made it

The La Poiana Cooperative was created in 1982 with aim of protecting and promoting the local cheeses, cheeses from the so called Grana Valley, starting with the Castelmagno, the King. La Poiana is made by artisan cheese mongers that create cheeses respecting the tradition and the territory, the valley.

La Poiana is synonymous with Castelmagno, 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, from Castelmagno di cooperative soon started producing other local cheeses, from Robiola to Pecorino. All their cheeses are made according to the tradition and are made with raw, non pasteurised milk, full and rich of flavour.
