Bra Duro DOP
This Alpine cow’s milk cheese takes its name from the town of Bra, the birthplace of the Slow Food movement. The region’s cheesemaking traditions come from the nomadic herdsmen who once came across the valleys with their animals to the plains. Bra Duro is a more aged version of Bra Tenero. Duro means rough or rugged in Italian, which refers to the rind. It is aged 5-6 months, developing slightly piquant flavors with a lingering finish of nuts, herbs, and hay. Eat as a table cheese or shave over pasta and vegetables. Preorder only.
