Product description

Raw milk cheese, whole goat’s milk, skilfully worked with French technique, with a very white, soft but compact paste and with its typically rough rind, a symptom of its aging process. On the sub-crost it will tend to become softer, indeed, creamy and its rind typically flowered, with the aging will not harden but will become softer.
Called “the beak”, which is also the name of the ram, or the male of the goat, also because being a raw milk its character will be more decisive and when more mature even a little ‘wild. In fact, it will be interesting to be able to taste it in various moments of his “life” to be able to grasp the many aspects of the character always evolving.
The rind, as for all flowering crusts, must be eaten.

At the National Competition of raw-milk cheeses “CRUDI IN ITALIA 2017” he won the Gold Medal.
At the National Cheese Competition in the Shadow of the Madonnina, in 2018 it obtained the Superior Quality Award.
