Puzzone di Moena
A mature cheese made with raw milk from the municipalities of Moena and Predazzo, with its distinct aroma that delights enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike. It has initial pungent notes intertwined with scents of mountain pastures, wild grasses, ripened fruits and hints of toasted hazelnut. Tradition states that during the aging process the cheese wheels are “washed” by hand by the cheesemakers with warm water to encourage the formation of a waterproof outer layer, within which develop the characteristic smells and flavours. The version produced at the Malga (mountain dairy) is made in the summer with raw milk from the mountain pastures and is a Slow Food Listed Product. The cheese is in the process of attaining the D.O.P. certification.
