Product description

Cheese that will surely have, as it already has, a lot of criticism for the name simply because everyone has a different way of writing or reading this name. Even there are those who wrote to us by email or those who called us to point out that this exclamation, this word Madonna del Carmine, was written incorrectly.

Obviously, it must be clarified that there is no blasphemy or irreverence behind this name given to a cheese. Far from it!

In fact, this cheese is a real tribute to the Campania region, a dedication to Naples and the entire Neapolitan population. Born after Andrea Magi first professional trip to Naples and the various neighboring provinces. To this cheese, it was originally destined another name, but among the wonders of the cities and the professionals met on this occasion, who welcomed him in such a warm and almost reverential way, that he was so deeply impressed that he felt in debt and needed to dedicate a cheese.

The reason for this name comes from the typical exclamation of wonder and amazement, when a thing is beautiful or very good. This is what Andrea felt when he first tasted this cheese once  ged: “mamma mia how good!.” Therefore, the name – Maronn ro Carmen – what a cheese!

After giving the right explanation to the name, not determined by chance, we need to talk about this cheese made with a mixture of sheep and goat milk and then aged.

It is put on the market after about 6 or 12 months of refining in the cave, but for the future we plan to make custom reserves for customers who wish to do so.

The crust is not edible.

Smell: on the nose it has notes of cooked butter and vegetables such as dried fruit and a toast near the crust, but also a slight smell of undergrowth, an animal scent of high intensity;
