Food Pairing 

  Salame Felino IGP. Giuberti

Salame Felino IGP is made of fairly coarsely minced pork cuts, slightly spiced and then dressed. The “Gentile” type of Salame is undoubtedly a more prestigious product for which a thicker and larger type of gut is used, thereby enabling a longer maturation phase.

Occelli ® nel fieno Maggengo (in “Maggengo” first-crop hay)

This is a hard-texture cheese left to age for a few months. The wheels are wrapped in the spring hay of mountain pastures, which enhances it with the aromas and fragrances of alpine flowers.

Toma Nostrale. Occelli 

Produced with raw cow’s milk, this is a cheese characteristic of this area. Its rustic traits are guarantee of typical mountain cheeses. Over time its delicate flavour becomes stronger with aromas recalling herbs and meadow flowers. In country cooking it was also used to season and enrich poor dishes such as polenta. A good, even young, Dolcetto is the ideal wine for this type of cheese.
