Brusco (Caciotta stagionata) cheese
Brusco (Caciotta stagionata) is a cows' milk cheese produced in Melo in the comune of Cutigliano in Tuscany. It has a salty flavour and a slightly sour aroma. The cheese is semi-hard and white in colour, with a wrinkled rind. It has a cylindrical shape and sizes range from 1.7 to 2 kg.
The milk is thermised at 68°C and rested for 40 minutes. Next, the curds are distributed into moulds by hand, allowed to drain and then they go through the salting process. Maturing takes place in a traditional, local, fresh, and airy place on wooden planks of poplar. The cheese is not washed before eating, but brushed.
