We are proud to present you a new cheese signed Luigi Guffanti: Buonasorte with buffalo milk. From the union of cow's milk with buffalo milk comes a high quality product, capable of bringing the cheese to a high degree of maturation, while maintaining the natural sweetness of buffalo milk. The decision to dress Buonasorte with buffalo milk in white responds to a precise desire to diversify it from its older brother and other hard cheeses, not only in quality but also in presentation and consumer recognition.

A very sweet novelty on the occasion of Christmas 2021. The modern reinterpretation of the classic Guffanti Herbal Praline: from today the first ERBORITAIN are available! A chocolate Napolitain (both milk and white chocolate) with a core of blue cheese, hence the name ERBORINO + napolITAIN = ERBORITAIN each praline bears the name of the founders of Luigi Guffanti Formaggi, Luigi and Dirce (husband and wife). The two Napolitain united form a heart, the great heart of the suppliers and the great heart with which Guffanti hands down its dairy tradition over time.
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.

It is finally available, with the first wheels of pasture 2021, a Guffanti must: COD. 7700100 TOMA DEL TICCIO ALPE VALLEZOO https://guffantiformaggi.com/en/cheese/toma-del-ticcio-alpe-vallezoo/ Amazing production and flavour!
