Our Featured Italian Gourmet Cheese
Verde Capra, (Green Goat) is a unique goat's milk blue cheese that is made by the cheesemaker Ambrogio Arnoldi in the Lombardy region of Italy, the same region that is known for the production of Taleggio.
This large rindless cheese of approx. 25 pounds is made with pasteurized goat's milk, then inoculated with Penicillium roqueforti and matured for about 90 days. It is wrapped in foil to avoid drying out.
The texture of this cheese is dense and creamy, almost like fudge. The flavor is somewhat similar to a Gorgonzola with a goat's milk tang; the salt is restrained, the flavors approachable, with no fierce blue bite and it can be appealing for all types of cheese lovers.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces. read more...
