Smooth when younger. Dry and flinty when well aged Pantaleo always finished smooth with a touch of spice reminiscent of smoky white pepper.

The Flavor Experience
The goat's diet and maker's craft blend to provide Pantaleo its outstanding flavor. It comes on gentle and mild but lingers as it unfolds into a long, nutty, peppery finish. This cheese pairs extremely well with fresh shellfish such as oysters, shrimp, and crabs.
Pantaleo is a rare 'caprino' made in a land dominated by sheep milk production. In, fact the cheese is made by one of the area's most trusted producers of Fiore Sardo.
Pair with Sicilian pistachio pâté or La Quercia Prosciutto Piccante.
