Vecchia Latteria Guffanti

A member of the great Veneto ‘Latteria’ family. Well adapted to ripening, which is beyond the year, expressing itself at its best when it reaches 24 months in the caves; the fresh forms are frequently used in the production of ‘drunk’ cheese.

In our caves we let this cheese mature until the optimally aged of two years, allowing the cheese to obtain the ideal consistency and aromas for tasting.
