Alta Langa Camembert

Camembert dell'Alta Langa is a soft cheese made from a mix of cow, sheep, and goat's milk with a delicate and wrinkled rind. Its flavor is characterized by notes of fresh milk, hay, and straw. Although rarely seen in this country, making cheese from mixed milk is a common practice in Italy, where small-scale farmers pool the milk from all their livestock. The flavor combines the richness of cows’ milk with the sweetness of sheep’s milk. The goats’ milk lends a certain piquancy, with no more than the slightest hint of ‘goatiness’. More understated than pure cows’ milk Camembert, but luscious and absolutely delicious.

Caseificio dell’Alta Langa is located in Bosia, a little village of Alta Langa area, in the Piemontese hills. They still produce their cheeses according to regional tradition of collecting small batches of milk to produce mixed milk cheeses.
