Easily recognizable by its rippled rind created by the baskets it is aged in, when looking for a sweeter, Italian cheese this classic is the way to go. It has a surprisingly delightful creamy mouthfeel considering its dry, firm texture that comes with up to a year of aging. With earthy, woody notes and sweet grass qualities more present than its Parimigiano cousins, the Bianco Sardo maintains a tang even though it is less salty. This is a great cheese for traditional uses like fresh grating onto pasta but we say get creative, make a pizza topped with a fresh sprinkle of olive oil to enjoy some developed flavors.
