Valtellina Casera PDO

Aged 70 days

Valtellina Casera PDO a cheese with a centuries-old cheese-making tradition. When matured for over 70 days, it is infused with intense aromas and flavours reminiscent of the fresh air of mountain pastures and its paste becomes yellow, crumbly and consistent. The Casera was once produced during the winter, when the cattle rested in the sheds after being back from the pastures. It is now produced all year long. Its name originates from “casera”, the cellar where cheeses are aged on wooden boards.
