The technique and processing are similar to that of Taleggio, which was once called “Stracchino” like other cheeses of Lombardy raw dough products mainly after the descent from the mountain (when the cattle were “weary”, or tired): this production however only uses the raw goat milk, which gives it very special characteristics. The color can range from pasta ivory to yellow. It is fairly compact with rare holes. The washed rind tends to be reddish brown, with blooms of blue-grey. This cheese has a very intense, penetrating taste with acidic and rich notes.
