Cow and Sheep

Cusie in Foglie di Castagno was selected to be one of Beppino Occelli’s best. Aged for a long time, sometimes for over two years, in the Valcasotto cellars, it is then refined and enriched with an outer layer of chestnut leaves, giving it a delicacy and complexity of aroma. This cheese is produced with either sheep and cows’ milk, or goat and cows’ milk from animals that are left free to pasture in summer. It is a hard cheese that is aged from 18 to 24 months. The cheese wheels are then wrapped in chestnut leaves giving the cheese its unique and exceptional flavor. It is ideally accompanied by a fine dark specialty beer.
