PDO cheeses: the italian excellence

The Italian PDO cheeses are deeply rooted in history and in the everyday life of our country.

Their fame is strictly linked to the land in which they are born and we owe it to the hard work of our ancestors, who knew a unique and inimitable way to transform milk and how to maintain such a tradition.
