Product description

It belongs to the family of natural blue cheeses, so there is no addition of noble mold during the cheese making, the only ingredients are milk, salt and rennet.
It is in the second phase of maturation that, after drilling, alongside the shapes of the rye loaves, spores are formed naturally attracted by the drying of the dough, which allow the formation of the characteristic bluish streaks.
For this characteristic type of processing we can have more or less muffled shapes inside, in fact, just for this characteristic, it is called white-blue because it will have a prevalence of white over blue.
