Croce "Riserva" 4 months
Croce Riserva is a square-shaped cheese with a dense, crumbly texture, uniform holes and a mild flavor. Croce is a cheese that takes its name from a small hamlet located 1,200 meters above sea level. The irregular flat faces, almost marked by the passage of time, tell the uniqueness and history of each wheel.

Alpine Pasture Cheeses
Thanks to the experience of cheesemaker Marco Oldetti, in addition to Castelmagno, ancient cheeses that have long since been forgotten have been rediscovered. The supply chain is "cm 0": from milk to aging, all processing is done in an artisanal way within a few meters. These unobtainable cheeses are produced starting exclusively from the raw milk of the estate's own dairy cows, free to graze in spring and summer in the meadows surrounding the farmhouse at almost 2000m above sea level.
Dry, manual salting with sea salt is provided for all cheeses. Besides milk, the main ingredients are ferments and animal rennet. The entire cheesemaking process and the ripening and aging stages take place in the dairy located in the upper part of the Valliera hamlet. Raw milk is the key element in the production of high-quality dairy products. The reason is as follows: the link between the cow, the pastures and the artisan art. In fact, raw milk must be processed within a few hours of milking, which results in a product that encompasses all the flavor of the production area, thus respecting all the strains of lactic acid bacteria, yeasts and molds present in the producer's stables.
