Occelli Testun con Frutta e Grappa di Moscato

Quick Overview:

A decorative mix of dried apricots, figs, prunes and sultanas is laid on top of each wheel, imbuing the dense, moist paste with a definite fruitiness.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Italy
Milk Type/Treatment: Sheep/Cow
Rennet Type: Animal

The Flavor Experience

Testun con Frutta e Grappa di Moscato is a sheep and cow milk blend aged for 12 months, and enriched with grappa. Thick and textural with a fragrant, bold flavoring due in part to the grappa soak.

The Story

Located in Italy’s Piedmont region, the Beppino Occelli company produces excellent mixed milk cheeses that reflect the terroir and traditional cuisine of the region. The cow’s, goat’s and sheep’s milk for these cheeses are sourced locally, through partnerships with shepherds and from the company’s own farm. Milk type ratios in the cheeses differ according to the availability of each milk, reflecting the seasonality of the animals’ natural lactation cycles. Cheeses are aged on shelving made of different varieties of local wood, in both natural and man-made caves in the mountain town of Valcasotto.

Usage Tips

Pairs nicely with black tea as a sweet afternoon treat!

    This cheese is amazing. It is beautiful with all the dried fruit decoration on top, but even more important, it is scrumptious. I love stilton type cheeses as a rule, but this one is now my favorite cheese ever. Piquant but very smooth and melty.
