La Casera Fiacco Di Capra
Don’t let the square shape and ridged rind fool you; this is not your daddy’s Taleggio. This classic goat’s milk variant from Lombardy is delicately balanced and might make your mouth pucker ever-so-slightly with a tart and pungent punch. Aged for just 60 days after being thermalized, this cheese arrives ever so pungent and perfectly spreadable. It sports a wonderfully silken texture that gives way to a paste that is distinctly goaty and pithy - think fresh goat milk and grapefruit. Despite the name (fiacco means tired), we doubt that you'll get tired of this little beauty. A Belgian ale surpasses all other rival pairings with its gentle tartness.
