This cheese has a very soft paste and an even straw yellow colour, and is named after the traditional conservation process, which took place on straw (the Italian word for straw being "paglia").
The light and slightly mouldy rind, and the short ripening period give Paglierina® an unmistakable flavour and the appearance of cheeses matured on straw, maintaining the characteristic aroma of hay and almond.
Awarded the Grolla d’Oro Formaggi d’autore 2010 and Silver World Cheese Award 2016/2017.
