The full flavour of Taleggio Valley
The rind is thin and furrowed, sometimes flowery, and of a yellowish colour which tends towards grey later in the season. The paste is compact, marbled and softer in the streaked, straw-coloured subcrust which can sometimes be creamy due to the layering effect of the two curds.
The aroma is characteristic of blue-veined cheeses, with notes that are slightly lactic at first, then take on more metallic notes. The taste is aromatic and intense, ranging from sweet to spicy depending on the degree of aging; the cheese is fragrant, soft and has a pleasant vegetal aftertaste.
