A soft cheese with a mousse-like texture, almost like very light cheese cake Il Nocciolo is an artisan cheese produced by a renowned dairy in Piemonte, Italy.
Named after the popular Piemontese hazelnut trees, il Nocciolo is a soft cheese produced with a blend of cow's, sheep's and goat's milk, a mix commonly used in this area.
The flavors are very complex, slow to develop, and leave you with a pleasant tang characteristic of goat’s milk cheese. Delicious on its own, il Nocciolo also can be used for raising the bar on any cheese plate.
Thanks to its creamy texture and tangy flavor it pairs perfectly with fresh fruit like apples and jams or with French baguette slices served with our more robust red wines like Folly.
