Description:

Apart from the excellence of Lombard milk, the genuineness of Mauri cheeses is also guaranteed by the unique maturing process that benefits from another gift of the territory: the Lanche, the natural caves of Valsassina. These caves provide the perfect microclimate for maturing cheese and as such many of Mauri’s aged cheeses are matured there.

 

Made with the highest quality Lombardy milk and in full respect to old time traditions, Mauri Taleggio is without doubt a first-class cheese. Mild and delicate, melting and creamy on the palate, aromatic in its subtleness, it represents the shining star the stracchino* cheese family. Its raw-dough like pâté and washed surface convey a complex yeasty morish flavour and an aroma reminiscent of almonds and sweet hay. The presence of mould patches on the rind is a side effect of the natural aging process and is not seen as a defect, it is actually quite the reverse. Without these moulds and ferments on the rind, Taleggio just would not be Taleggio. 

 

*Stracchino, a generic term used to describe soft style cheeses that have been made in Lombardy since the 12th century. Cheeses in this family include Taleggio, Crescenza, Artavaggio and Robiola.
