A typical Cuneese cheese, Pagliettina is a tuma with a characteristic straw-white crust, made from cow's milk, goat's milk and sheep's milk.
Cuneese is a district in Cuneo, a city and commune in Piedmont, Northern Italy. Here, in the valleys of the Monregalese area, the breeders of cows, flocks of sheep and goats produce milk for this small, fragrant and flavorsome cheese. With a few days of maturation, the paste becomes more creamy.
Variants such as the Pagliettina are produced and the Mediterranean variant also has pistachios, peel and orange petals for a full-bodied taste, slightly bitter and fresh.
