List of products by brand Caseificio Poggiocastro

Caseificio Poggiocastro are an agro-food farm located in Pavullo in the heart of the Parmigiano Reggiano Tresure Island. They biologically produce all the milk that they then transform into Parmigiano Reggiano, soft cheeses and yogurt and adhering to strict quality controls. From farming, to harvesting, to breeding and processing, Poggiocastro are highly committed to producing the very best, natural, genuine dairy products for your table.

They also won the Bellavita Platinum Award at our Chicago Expo for their aged Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

Poggiocastro's typology is still exactly like in the old times, feeding their cows with mixed grass pastures, medical herbs, cereals and vegetal proteins such as whole soybeans. Feeding their animals such an ideal diet means that they produce excellent milk of the highest quality, which is then immediately used for Poggiocastro's award-winning products.

There are 6 products.

Cow's Mozzarella (125g) - Poggiocastro

£1.60

Mozzarella with a unique milky taste and texture. A winner with everyone.

Our mozzarella is made from the finest, fresh, homemade cow\'s milk, which gives it a unique milky taste and texture that is incomparable to industrial versions. Made daily on the land, the mozzarella dough is soft, elastic and delicately flavoured. Best served at room temperature, fresh mozzarella is delicious just as it is, or with a bit of salt, pepper, basil, fresh marjoram or oregano - all topped off with a good extra virgin olive oil of course.

Stracchino Soft Cheese (250g) - Poggiocastro

£3.70

A soft, melt-in-the-mouth cheese that perfectly expresses the natural flavour and aromatics of a good quality milk.

Also known simply as Crescenza, Stracchino (also known as Crescenza) is characterised by a delicate yet velvety taste, full of the natural flavour and aromatics of a good quality cow milk. It is a soft cheese, with a smooth, almost paste, consistency. Spread it on crostini, or melt it into a grilled sandwich or into a cream sauce over pasta.

Cow's Milk Ricotta "Fiocco di Neve" (500g) - Poggiocastro

£3.20

Ricotta\'s delicate flavour pairs well with both sweet and savoury dishes. Ideal for healthy baking and pasta sauces!

Made without any additives, naturally low in fat and rich in proteins, undoubtedly, the best ricotta you’ll ever experience comes straight from the farm - such as this one. An underrated cheese if ever there was one, this soft, white and delicately sweet ricotta is great on its own, but also marries beautifully with both sweet and savoury dishes. A light, fresh variety whose potential comes through best when it\'s a supporting actor, its delicate, creamy flavour compliments other ingredients rather than clashing with them, mellowing out strong, robust flavours and lending creaminess to dry foods. From salty cured hams, fresh figs and honey to classic spinach and ricotta ravioli, to ricotta salads, to desserts such as cannoli and Neapolitan pastiera and even pancakes.

Parmigiano Reggiano DOP - Aged 30 months (~200g)

£8.50

This award-winning Parmigiano Reggiano DOP* is unlike any other Parmesan you\'ve tasted before.

Considered by some to be the greatest cheese on earth, the King of Italian cheeses has a rich, nutty yet delicate flavour, and real Parmigiano-Reggiano is so much more than just your ordinary table condiment. From the middle ages to present day, this delicious cheese owns its title, and must meet certain requirements to earn its name. It can only be made in a specific designated region of Italy, from high quality pastures and milk, produced using the same artisanal methods that have remained unchanged for seven centuries. Its natural aging process and the complete absence of preservatives, additives or colouring agents help to place Parmigiano as undeniably one of the world\'s greatest cheeses. Grana means grainy, which explains Parmigiano\'s unrivalled texture, which can be eaten hundreds of different ways. Nibble of delicious chunks of it alone, or perhaps drizzled with balsamic vinegar, grate over a carpaccio, or eat for dessert with pears. Its texture and flavour can also be included in risottos, pastas and salads, making real, good quality Italian Parmigiano the perfect kitchen investment. *DOP: DOP is short for Denominazione di Origine Protetta (literally “Protected Designation of Origin”). This certification ensures that products are locally grown and packaged, using traditional method.

Unsalted Artisanal Butter (250g) - Poggiocastro

£2.50

A light butter that tastes like nature.

Unsalted butter of the highest quality, produced by centrifuging the milk just milked, and always coming from a spinneret at a low temperature. This keeps many of the excellent characteristics of the milk from which it derives. Its fat has the characteristic of melting at a temperature of 30° C, lower than that of the human body. This makes this butter easily digestible and rapidly assimilable.

Parmigiano Reggiano DOP - Aged 24 months (100g) - Poggiocastro
