Quattro Portoni Caciocavallo Di Bufala
Caciocavallo is a stretched-curd cheese, so its springy texture is something you simply knead to have. Typically it’s made from sheep’s or cow’s milk, but this buffalo version adds a thick, creamy essence that creates a fullness of body to complement the freshness of flavor.
