Casciotta d’Urbino DOP

Casciotta d’Urbino DOP is a central Italian cheese made with sheep and cow’s milk that is specifically produced in the province of Urbino, for which it is named after, and the province of Pesaro, found in the Italian region of Marche.

Casciotta d’Urbino is usually sold as a fresh cheese, as a result its taste is sweet and slightly acidic, with a distinct milky aroma. It is also famous for its small dimensions, with a maximum diameter of 16 cm and often not even weighing 1kg.

Casciotta is the perfect cheese for a cutting board of cold cuts, especially with Prosciutto di San Daniele or Prosciutto di Parma, both DOP, it also pairs well with light, fruity wines, such as Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC
