“Occhiobello” – Cow’s milk cheese semi-aged De’Magi

When we opened the first shape of this cheese the first thing we thought was but what a beautiful eyelet this cheese has! So naming it was easy and intuitive.

 

The aromatic profile of this cheese is very interesting, because we can describe it as a middle ground between a Swiss and a Dutchman, that is, it is sweeter than Emmenthal and tastier than Dutch. Chewing a piece of this cheese you can clearly see a feeling of herbs but especially of dried fruit (walnut) that is really clear.

The rind is edible, so it can be eaten.
