The best italian cheeses

In Italy there are more than 400 kinds of cheese.

Italy has hundreds of capital cities, different from one to the other in their history, traditions and in the behaviour of their citizens. Equally to what happens with culture, Italian cheeses present big differecens from one to the other.

There are cow cheeses, sheep cheeses and goat cheeses; some cheese is produced in the Alps, other ones are produced in Sardinia near the sea; there are chilled cheeses, cheeses with olives, cheeses with pepper or with pistachios; there are very fresh cheeses like Mozzarella or aged ones like Parmigiano Reggiano.

Boni P&O Srl selected carefully moreover 20 of the best Italian cheeses and their producers one by one, to be sure of having the greatest cheeses, because even if every cheese has the P.D.O. certification, there are differences in the productions from one dairy to the other.

So, to be an Italian cheese selector, is not an easy job.

    Tastes and scents are very similar one wheel to the other, strictly connected with the cheese aging: softer and sweeter if the cheeses is between 10 and 19 months old, more spicy and straw in scent as the cheese becomes older.
