Brunet is a young goat's milk cheese from Piedmont region in Italy.
This Italian gourmet cheese is very young and is almost spreadable. It smells like mushrooms and creme fraiche and can be enjoyed with red and white wine.
Cakey at its core with an ice cream-smooth creamline and a rind that‘s just icing on the cake. Caseifocio dell’Alta Langa—a cheesemaking company names after an ancient breed of goat—crafts each round from pasteurized goat’s milk in Piedmont, Italy.
Brunet is a small round thin disk of approx. 8.8 ounces, soft-ripened with a thin rind and a creamy ivory-colored interior - no reason to cut the rind as it is very edible.
We receive each round in a squat cupcake wrapper and immediately transfer to our cool, humid subterranean cheese caves. After a few weeks Brunet emerges as a delicate gift to cheeselovers.
Its paste retains a goaty tang while our aging caves impart complex flavors of sweet straw and seeded bread loaves.
