Caprino Al Pepe Nero (Black Pepper)
Caprino is made from a blend of goat's milk and cow's milk, and with the addition of black peppercorns, this cheese has a distinctive flavor. The expert blending of the two milks and the careful aging give us a cheese that is aromatic with hints of the acidity of the goat's milk, yet which still retains all the sweetness of the cow's milk. Sweet when young, it becomes more and more intense with age. It can be eaten on its own as a second course, cut into cubes to prepare salads, or used as a decoration for starters made with raw vegetables. We love to shave it over pasta and grilled steaks.
