I was offered a taste of this cheese when I walked up to the Whole Foods cheese counter in San Francisco last week. I really loved its smooth, silky texture and the slightly acidic flavor. I just served it on a cheese plate and it got great reviews.  This cheese is a specialty of the Alta Lange region of Italy and is made from a mixture of cow’s milk, goat’s milk and sheep’s milk. The milk is pasteurized at the lowest temperature allowed. It is aged for only 15 days. It comes in 8 ounce sizes and sells for about $12 per half pound. Pair it with a nice Sauvignon Blanc.
