This Italian goat’s milk cheese from Lombardy is easily recognized by its gray, stony rind and dense, ivory paste. Ca’ de Ambros Rusticapra has a profile reminiscent of wet stone and fresh earth, and a slight tang and tartness. Despite its rustic appearance and minerality, this cheese has a surprising creaminess that pairs well with sweet white wines and Italian eats like Murray’s Sliced Speck and Murray’s Pitted Italian Olive Mix.

“What an underrated cheese--Italy is often known for its cow and sheep’s milk cheese, but I love its lesser-known goat’s milk cheeses. The eye-catching rind, lemony notes, and robust flavor when paired with some fresh lemon curd makes this cheese one of my favorites.”

  • Ca’ de Ambros Rusticapra comes from Lombardy, Italy, which is located in the North/Central region, bordering Switzerland. Lombardy has mountains, hills and plains and is bordered in the South by the Po river.
  • Typically, goat's milk cheeses often come from rocky or mountainous regions because goats fare better in those environments and don't need rolling pastures to survive.
  • Rusticapra has a firm, mottled crust of a rind that has a dusty, mineral-like aroma.
  • Its paste has an earthy flavor with a mix of sweetness and acidity.
  • The cheese’s firm texture makes it incredibly versatile, making its great for simple snacking or shaving over a salad.
When you receive your cheese, unpack the order and refrigerate the items. We recommend using the cheese paper we send most of our products in to store the cheese. The cheese paper helps cover the items and stop them from drying out, while also allowing the cheese to breathe. Since cheese is mold, it's a living thing! If you cut off air circulation to the cheese, you can actually cause it to suffocate and spoil at a faster rate.
