Castelmagno Of Mountain DOP - La Bruna

Castelmagno PDO is a noble cheese and the pride of La Bruna. The entire production process accurately follows the tradition of the Grana Valley: through direct checks on the whole processing chain and thanks to the highly selected Italian Brown Alpine cattle the company guarantees a top quality cow’s milk that enriches the cheese with the real flavours of mountain pastures. Moreover, the ripening process takes place in underground stone caves where water constantly flows in small waterfalls. This guarantees the best moisture level for the cheese ripening.
The inedible rind is smooth and yellow. Along the ripening process shades appear, first reddish and then darker. The texture, which is initially crumbly and then gets harder while ripening, does not have any holes and is of a pearl white when the cheese is fresh and of a strong straw-yellow when it is aged. It has a rich and silky flavour, well balanced between sour and sweet and reminding of alpine grazing tastes. Through the ripening phases the delicate taste gets stronger and sharper.

How to savour it

The name “Castelmagno” makes us think of typical dishes such as potato gnocchi with Castelmagno, but it can also be savoured alone, on top of roasted polenta. It was among the first cheeses to be combined with the varied kinds of honey, from the oak honeydew to the lime honey to the acacia honey. The wines to be served with this cheese must be strong full-bodied ones, such as Nebbiolo or the important wines that originate from it like Barolo or Barbaresco.

The Castelmagno: the King of the Piedmontese Cheeses
The artisanal production of Castelmagno, a cow's milk cheese with minimum addictions of sheep's or goat's milk (from 5% to 20%). The Milk comes from the cows in mountain pasture following the ancient techniques. The Alpine huts are over 1600 metres height: here, the great variety and fragrance of the grass and flowers, enriched by the oat grass, gives Castelmagno excellent organoleptic characteristics. The technique of making Castelmagno consist of break of the curd in clumps as big as a grain of corn. The result is made dried off for 24 hours in cloth, after that there's another break in cubes, the result than acidify for 3 three days under buttermilk before being crushed and kneaded again adding some salt and than it is pressed in the shapes for one day. After that the Castelmagno ages in a natural environment for almost 120 days. The past is ivory and soft: after the maturation it acquires more compactness and a darker colour, sometimes with blu-green shades due to the development of the moulds responsible of the marbling.

Società Agricola La Bruna: Castelmagno D'alpeggio Dop e Castelmagno di Montagna invernale Dop
La Bruna Farm originated from the passion and love for the mountain and its traditions of Evanzio, Ivano and Davide, who has followed in his father’s footsteps. Back in 1921 grandfather Magno, shepherd in the upper valley, used to milk his cows up in the mountain pastures and produce cheese for himself and a few other people in a little shepherds’ hut. The precious little secrets were handed down to the new generations that still produce that cheese today following the same ancient customs.
