Quadrello® di Bufala
Buffalo were originally brought to Italy in the 7th Century and references to cheese made from their milk appeared in the 1300's. Today, Quattro Portoni makes over 25 different types of cheese from buffalo milk at their farm in Cologno al Serio outside of Bergamo. We are lucky enough to carry their Quadrello® di Bufala. A washed-rind buffalo milk cheese made in the style of Taleggio, it has a rind that ranges from pale pinkish red to oatmeal colored and drier. In both instances the rind protects the cheese so it stays delicious. It has richness from the buffalo milk, mingled with the saltiness of a washed-rind cheese. Quadrello® is wonderfully creamy and sweet with a slight tang in the finish.
