Valle d’Aosta Cheeses

The production process involves the use of fresh milk and begins within two hours from milking, the cheese is salted and matured on fir shelves, treated daily with great care. After about five months the cheese is ready, the dough is soft and elastic, with a pale yellow color that varies in intensity depending on its age.
