June Cheese Club: Iowa

Cheese ClubRocchetta CheeseCaseificio dell’Alta Langa
Rocchetta
Italy

The Rocchetta is a blend of three different milks, pasteurized cow’s milk, pasteurized sheep’s milk and pasteurized goat’s milk. It is a slightly ripened soft cheese, without holes, and an edible white/straw yellow rind. Short and careful aging create a creamy balance, allowing the sweetness and acidity to melt together. The palate highlights flavors of butter and crème fraiche.

FOOD PAIRING: This cheese eats well on its own, or served alongside cured meats and jams, or in a salad.

WINE & CRAFT BEER PAIRING: The Caseificio dell’Alta Langa Rocchetta cheese pairs well with Italian wines, such as our June Primary White Wine Club wine, or a crisp Pinot Grigio. For beer, reach for a Weiss Beer or any pilsner
