New dairy discoveries in Guffanti!

The month of October ends with the arrival in our cellar in Arona of two new testimonials of the fantastic world of Guffanti cheeses, which is thus enriched with new colors, aromas and tastes. The characteristic of these two products is that they are made to evolve by the producers, in particularly suitable places, and, therefore, in the Guffanti cellars they are only finished and not already fully bred. For this reason they also keep the name with which they are baptized by the producers. We come to the first cheese La TOMETTA DELLA MINIERA from raw cow's milk from Valtrompia, raw paste produced with grafted milk and therefore without the addition of ferment, from animals in season to pasture. Small in size, semi-cured in an old mine (from which it takes its name) and finished in the Guffanti cellars where the crust is treated with the use of small doses of linseed oil (in the Valtrompiese fashion, hence the amber hue of the crust with its typical elasticity of that treatment). Interesting color of the paste, strong aroma testifying to a clear and pleasant taste. The second one: PECORINO FAUGLIA which owes its name to that area of ​​the Pisan territory in which it is produced. Very important size (even over 9 kg), proposed by the producer already with a good seasoning (we have lots of spring 2021) carried out in natural caves; therefore already pleasant product immediately but which is also put to rest and care in our cellars because it can be seasoned for a very long time. The pasta is semi-cooked and the curd, after being put into shape, is pressed manually. The paste is very light, compact and almost chalky, has a good aroma and, at the current maturation, a fresh taste with vegetable notes of astringency destined to disappear over time in favor of a more intense and full taste, with the contemporary evolution of the structure as well. of the pasta that becomes pleasantly staggering. In a nutshell, two products with a personality that fit well into the already wide and interesting range of Guffanti's farmed cheeses and, particularly not negligible, at a well-calibrated and balanced price.

Formaggio “BuonaSorte” Guffanti (+24 mesi)

When man discovered how to preserve milk (by coagulating it), history took a precise direction. Amongst the historic cheeses, a place of honour is reserved for those characterised by the granular structure of the paste which lends itself not so much to cutting as to fracturing into delicious flakes and grating. Sumptuous cheeses, respectful of the cycle of two daily milkings - one in the evening and the other in the morning - obtained by combining the two milks which must have different stamps, widespread where the pastureland allows large daily quantities of cow's milk to be obtained. So cheeses from very precise orographic areas of the pianura Padana and the result of rigorous processes for productions that valorise the starting milk. The BuonaSorte Guffanti cheese is an example of this, heir to a solid and recognised tradition in the Lodigiana area to which we wish to give testimony, in an appropriate manner and in observance of up-to-date technical/sanitary dictates. So a cheese that no longer makes a drop, because today it is pressed so as to avoid leaving too many whey residues. A cheese that no longer has greenish notes and nuances in the colour of the paste, because today the resting of the evening milk, destined for skimming, cannot take place in untinned copper basins. Nor does it have a black rind, as this can no longer be treated with the manteca that used to be made of smoky black, cooked linseed oil and rice flour to protect it during rearing. But it is still a great cheese: with a naturally hard and compact rind, protecting the golden yellow interior, slowly maturing, grainy and soft at the same time, very fragrant, with an aromatic flavour with a strong personality, with a great shelf life because it is able to maintain its characteristics unaltered for a long time. Guffanti's choice to promote this cheese fell on a producer from the lower reaches of the River Adda, who uses milk from animals fed with fodder from that area only. One of the customs that has remained unchanged is the jargon of the cheese-makers, who have always called their lots of cheese 'fate' to allude to the obvious fact that there could be better or worse lots due to chance. This is the reason behind the idea of BuonaSorte cheese for cheese lots with good results. The special version produced by Guffanti strictly requests the use of raw milk. An important detail: no lysozyme is used. Happy BuonaSorte Guffanti cheese!!!
