Taleggio was originally produced around the 10th century in Val Taleggio, in the province of Bergamo, from which it would subsequently take its name. Like Gorgonzola – of which it is a close relative – Taleggio is processed using raw pasta (cheeses processed at 36 °C, the minimum coagulation temperature) and subsequently it is baked in special rooms at 20 and 30 °C, to eliminate the excess serum.
The maturation takes place in natural caves such as those in the Valsassina, famous since the 18th century for their natural, ideal conditions for refining cheeses.

When, in 1876, Luigi Guffanti began to age Gorgonzola, his ingenious intuition led to the purchase of an abandoned silver mine in Valganna, in the province of Varese. The rest is simply history!
Over time, the Guffanti family has specialized in the selection, aging and refinement of the best Italian and international dairy products: the experience accumulated on Gorgonzola, which remains the brand’s trademark, has gradually been transferred to all other types of cheese. Five generations later, the attention to the artisanal quality of the dairy product and the passion for its careful refinement continue to characterize the Guffanti-Fiori family, which today has consolidated its status as one of the best cheese refiners in the world.
