Description



Caciocavallo Silano PDO has an oval or cylindrical shape, with or without a small head, and presents markings corresponding to where the cheese was tied. It has a soft smooth rind with a straw yellow colour, and a similar interior, which is lightly dappled with white or straw-coloured eyes. It is characterised by a pleasant aromatic flavour and is usually delicate, with a tendency towards sweet when the cheese is young, and piquant in the advanced stages of ripening; it melts in the mouth.
