Robiola Nostrana

Robiola Nostrana is produced by Stagionatura Guffanti in northwest Italy. The flavour is full and intense, sweet, milky and very delicate. Supple with a lovely straw colour, the cheese tastes a little like a Brie but it delivers a luscious flavor that you do not find in the bries typically available in the U.S.

The soft, moist rind allows for good air exchange that enhances the overall quality and produces a melt in your mouth center. This version is made with all cows' milk, though occasionally they have one available that has other milks added.  Try it with fruity white wines, lagers, fresh fruit, bread rolls or polenta.
