Mauri ripens its cheese products in natural caves – called “casere” in Pasturo, in the Valsassina Valley. This maturation gives the cheese a unique character. The Taleggio absorbs the aromas of the natural environment which exploits the mountains aeration system. A series of deep cracks in the rock connect the caves circulating moist air currents, from the high part of the mountain to the ground. This creates the ideal temperature and environment needed to ripen cheeses throughout the year. Made with the highest quality Lombardy milk and in full respect to PDO traditions, Mauri Taleggio is mild and delicate, melting and creamy on the palate, aromatic in its subtleness. Its soft pâté and washed surface convey a complex yeasty moreish flavour and an aroma reminiscent of almonds and sweet hay. The presence of mould patches on the rind is a side effect of the natural aging process and is not seen as a defect, in fact these moulds and ferments on the rind give Taleggio its distinct personality.
