Region: Lombardia

Milk: Cow or mixed

Raw material: Whole cows' milk or mixed ewes' milk, sometimes with the addition of skimmed milk from the evening yield, whey, rennet and salt.

Characteristics: Weight 0.3-0.5 Kg; form: square, rectangular or sometimes cylindrical.

Production area: Staffora (Pavia), on the borders of Piedmont, Liguria and Emilia Romagna.

Production technique: The milk is heated at 30-34°C, adding acid whey and liquid calf rennet. It coagulates in 30 minutes. Once the curds have been broken (into nutshell-sized pieces) they are left to stand for 30 minutes. They are then extracted with a ladle or cloth and placed in wooden moulds where they are pressed for no more than ten hours. They are dry-salted for 2 to 3 days. The cheese ripens in 15 days, at a temperature of 5-7 °C, sometimes in natural caves.
