San Tumas, a rare cheese, now at Gallucci’s!

San Tumas is a pure goat‘s milk cheese that has been aged a minimum of 3 months. It has a thin hard gray rind due to a light dry mold. It is tender and smooth when fresh, becoming slightly more chalky as it ages. The aroma of the goat‘s milk is delicate and light. It is homogenous and never too strong in taste. This delicious cheese is a combination of the art of the Valtellina cheesemakers and the sweet milk of the local mountain goats (a breed now almost in extinction). Delicious young or aged, with fruit and/or sweet preserves or possibly a fruit mustard.
