Food Sampling 

Parmigiano Reggiano maturation 48 months

Four years are necessary for the aging of this Parmigiano Reggiano 48 months.
The aspect of these cheese is more consolidate, patchy, wrinkled but mostly characterized by elasticity.
The colour is more intense, like amber, and there are more visible white pigments, typical of the care that we have reserved to these wheels. Its taste sounds more complex, sharp, and sends back our body and mind to the warm taste of nut, walnut, chestnut and almond…
It’s perfect when accompanied by a Lambrusco gelatine and by a meditation wine like Sautern, or with the strong and intense taste of a good Barolo…
Bresaola di Fassona 

Product made with Fassone meat, from cattle reared in the Piedmontese valleys.  The Piedmontese breed meat is characterized by low fat, less than 1%, and low cholesterol.

The taste is excellent.

Tuma del Trifulau®

The trifulau is the Langa farmer who wanders into the woods and hills at night with his dog in search of the precious truffles. In creating this cheese, Beppino Occelli was the first to combine the Langa tuma with a natural treasure: the black truffle.
