The Products

Aged Cheeses

The best cheeses from Valtellina inspired by tradition, with Protected Designation of Origin status: Bitto PDO and Valtellina Casera PDO. Besides them we have Valfontana, Chiuro and the timeless classic Latteria. Our experienced cheese makers hand down from generation to generation the processing and aging techniques used to produce these masterpieces. Their taste becomes more intense with age, and can be enhanced when paired with the fine DOCG (controlled and warranted designations of origin )red wines from Valtellina.

Valfontana Chiuro

The Valfontana is a sweet and delicate cheese, whose scent reminds of milk and wildflowers. It ows its name to the lush green valley few kilometres away from our Dairy. It is a unique product that can be savoured after just one month of aging. It is very appreciated in the kitchen thanks to its versatility. It can also be enjoyed in traditional Valtellina dishes, such as pizzoccheri and polenta taragna, or combined with dishes of the great Italian and Lombard cuisine such as risottos, pasta or savoury pies.

Fresh Cheeses

Fresh cheeses of Chiuro Dairy are famous and appreciated both in Italy and abroad. They include some of the most important cheeses of the dairy tradition of Italy and Valtellina: Robiola, Crescenza, Ricotta and Scimudin. They are called “fresh” because they are not subject to an aging process. The texture of fresh cheeses is soft, sometimes creamy and their taste is reminiscent of fresh milk and mountain herbs.
