Alta Langa Il Nocciolo
Supremely creamy and bursting with butter, this sweet square from Caseificio Dell’Alta Langa is a bite-sized block of pure delight. Made from a three-milk mixture of cow, sheep, and goat’s milk, this soft cheese is only aged for a day before it emerges with a thin white rind and mellow straw-colored paste. Il Nocciolo, which means “hazelnut,” or “hazelnut tree” in Italian, speaks to the nut-sized nature of this cute cube. Alta Langa, located in the Piedmont region of Italy, is known for utilizing local recipes and natural processes to create beautiful, world renowned cheeses like Il Nocciolo without the addition of preservatives. With melt-in-your-mouth silkiness and a flavor like fresh bread and butter, this bright and sweetly acidic cube pairs perfectly with a warm baguette and a glass of bubbly.
