“Dama rossa” – Red Chess Lady two-milks cheese
The alternative to the smaller chessboard, is a cheese of not large size but still attracts much attention in a cheese trolley or in a counter of gastronomy just for its appearance, as it seems to look like a lady of chess. This, too, is a cheese we created to create curiosity in the consumer who, after seeing it, will certainly be tempted to want to taste it.
Inside it has a very tender dough that tends to cremate and “let go and then it can be enjoyed at its best if stored in the refrigerator, but removed at least an hour before tasting in order to express all its aromas and flavors.
To find out more we want to intrigue you even more by telling you that it is difficult to describe … you need to taste it!
