Bettelmatt is a rare alpine cow’s milk cheese made in the Val d’Ossola, in upper Piemonte. Only 3,000 wheels are made each summer, when the cows graze in the alpine pastures of the Bettelmatt Alp, on the border with Switzerland. The cheese is aged three months and has a beautiful golden paste and a rustic natural rind. Bettelmatt smells of wine and ripe fruit, and its flavor is extremely complex, with many layers of flavor, including flowers, wild herbs, butter, and hard boiled egg. A unique, limited production cheese that is sure to delight alpine cheese lovers. Preorder only. 1/9#
