Salva Cremasco

$26.00/Lb


This is one cheese cube you won't find vacuum-packed in your grocer's fridge. A native of Northern Italy, Salva Cremasco comes from hillside farms in Lombardy. 'Salva', means 'saved', as it was traditionally made from excess milk and saved from spoiling. Surprisingly tart notes are balanced out by earthier tones within the dense, textured cubes that resemble a wet stone pulled from an ancient Roman viaduct. Under the natural rind, the paste is aromatic and bright, changing from creamy to crumbly the closer you get to the center, picking up herbal nuances as it ages in our caves. Savor a slice or two with a glass of crisp Hefeweizen or some deep Chianti.

Unless noted otherwise, Murray's cheeses sold by the lb ship in multiple 0.5 lb increments. To request a whole wheel, please contact the Murray's team at orders@murrayscheese.com at least 72 hours prior to your desired ship date.
