Quartirolo Lombardo DOP Stagionato Italian Cheese
- More Information
Quartirolo Lombardo PDO Seasoned
Is a soft table cheese made from whole or semi-skimmed cow’s milk obtained from cattle bred exclusively in the production area.
Quartirolo Lombardo PDO has a parallelepiped quadrangular shape with flat edges, a straight bottom and a weight of between 1.5 and 3.5 kg.
The rind is soft, thin and pinkish-white in colour for the fresh cheese, and reddish grey-green for the mature one. The cheese has a uniform and firm structure, slightly lumpy and crumbly, with the possibility of detachment. The cheese tends to become more firm and meltable with age.
The taste is characteristic, slightly acidulous-aromatic in the fresh cheese, and more fragrant in the mature variety.
Quartirolo Lombardo PDO is best kept wrapped in a slightly damp dishcloth or aluminum foil.
It is typically eaten with a meal, served as a main course or at the end of a meal, and at room temperature.
It is delicious when served with extra-virgin olive oil and seasoned with a bit of pepper, and goes well with nuts, apples, grapes and honey.
It is also a valued ingredient in the preparation of many recipes, such as starters, salads and desserts, as well as in delicacies such as “Quartirolo Lombardo PDO mousse with truffle and honey sauce” or “Lombarda quiche”.
It is usually paired with Lombardy wines that are not excessively aged.
