This Canestrato Lucano is a cheese produced in the Basilicata region, in the mountain valleys of the Agri River, in southern Italy. Canestrato Lucano (or Incanestrato, because the wheels are made to dry in baskets which is "canestro" in Italian) has the unique characteristic of being produced by adding a small amount of goat's milk to sheep's milk, which gives it a special flavor.

Chef's Advice

We recommend enjoying this cheese in combination with red wines and a spoon of aromatic honey. Pair with a spicy quince or pear mustard, grated over pasta or on homemade bread to create tasty bruschetta or croutons for a light and tasty appetizer.

When great-grandfather Luigi Guffanti began aging Gorgonzola in 1876, his genius intuition was the purchase of an abandoned silver mine in Valganna, in the province of Varese. Five generations have passed, the attention to the artisanal quality of the cheese product and the passion for careful ripening continue to characterize the Guffanti-Fiori family, consolidated to this day as one of the best ripeners in the world.
