Masterpieces which aren't just for looking at
Fresh cheeses are the biggest category of dairy products produced in Apulia. They are characterised by a lower fat content compared to matured cheeses and other types of dairy products, and by their milky and delicate taste.
We use a smoking system which is completely natural, without the addition of liquids or chemicals; it is carried out using wood chip ovens, which give our smoked cheeses an incredibly tasty flavour and a light and pleasant aroma.
Matured cheeses are cheeses which are left to mature for several months after being produced. This drying and maturing system gives these cheeses special organoleptic and sensorial characteristics which mark them out from other types of dairy products.
Handmade to suit our lactose-intolerant customers, delactosed by a natural process involving the splitting of lactose proteins, Desideria – Ignalat mozzarella and burrata – are lactose-free but full of taste, so you won’t have to miss out on the taste and flavour of the Ignalat stretched curd specialities.
This is the flagship of our production, whose range includes fresh products like burrata, ricotta-filled dumplings and giuncata, but also soft-crust cheeses like caciotte.
