Toma Piemontese DOP is an Italian semi-cooked cheese produced with whole cow’s milk.
The production area of Toma Piemontese DOP is within the provinces of Novara, Verbania-Cusio-Ossola, Vercelli, Biella, Turin and Cuneo and several municipal areas in the provinces of Asti and Alessandria, in the northwestern Italian region of Piemonte. The cheese has a cylindrical shape with a flat surface, smooth rind and a yellow and slightly-reddish colour. Its texture is soft and light, while it’s taste is sweet, pleasant and delicate.
Toma Piemontese DOP is usually eaten as a table cheese, and pairs well with a young sparkling wine, such as Franciacorta DOCG or Alta Langa DOC.
