  • Cacioricotta
    The technology used to make this cheese is partly based on the methods applied to make typical southern Italian cacioricotta. The unique aspect of the method preferred is that milk is heated to about 85 °C before rennet is added and processing begins. This is a fresh cheese sold after very short affinage (about a week), and it is made only in spring and early autumn.

  • Fior di Robiola
    The production process for “Fior di Robiola” is the same used for “Tomino fresh” (see following profile). The differences lie in the shape, the number of times the cheeses are turned(4–5), and the drying out performed at room temperature (approx. 25°C) for4hours. These procedures enable greater drainage of the whey (synaeresis) and acidification of the curds.

  • Paglieretta
    “Paglieretta”belongstothe“Paglierina” family of cheeses that area speciality of the provinces of Turin and Cuneo, whose name is derived from the fact that they were once aged in straw, which promoted the formation of the white mould on the rind and left the characteristic striped pattern on it. A characteristic of these cheeses is their ability to age very quickly, developing a tangy aromatic flavour, particularly if sheep’s  milk is used in their production. In the late 19th century the name “Paglierina” was registered as a trade mark by Cesare Quaglia, the owner of the dairy located in San Francesco al Campo, in the province of Turin. “Paglierina” is featured in the “Cheeses“ category of the list of Piedmontese Prodotti Agroalimentari Tradizionali (Traditional Agri-FoodProducts) (RegionalGovernment Decreeno.46-5823dated15/04/2002).

  • Paglierina®

Today Caseificio Longo is the owner of the trademark. “Paglierina” is featuredinthe“Cheeses“ category of the list of Piedmontese Prodotti Agroalimentari Tradizionali (Traditional Agri-Food Products) (Regional Government Decree no. 46-5823 dated 15/04/2002).
