Caprino presamico Piemontese cheese

Region: Piemonte

Milk: Goat, mixed

Synonyms: Piedmontese rennet-coagulated caprino, tumin ‘d crava, tumin ‘d ciavra.

Definition: Soft cheese.

Raw material: Whole goats' milk, sometimes mixed with small quantities of cows' and/or ewes' milk, rennet, salt.

Characteristics: Weight around 200-300 g; diameter 8-12 cm; sides 3-6 cm. The fresh product has no rind whereas the aged cheese tends to have a thin, soft and smooth rind, varying in colour from pale yellow to light brown. The cheese is white and soft or semi-hard in the mature variety, white to straw-yellow in colour.

Production area: The entire Piedmontese alpine region.

Production technique: This cheese is made by rennet coagulation. The milk is heated to a temperature of 30-35 °C (in some cases up to 38 °C). Rennet is added and on average coagulation takes 30-45 minutes. The curds are coarsely broken and left to stand for 5-10 minutes before they are extracted and shaped into forms. They are then dry-salted (rarely in brine) and turned a few times. Ripening takes 5-15 days. Ageing can be carried out for a maximum of 50-60 days.
