CLAL focus on: Il Pincion

Il Pincion
Toniolo Casearia
Borso del Grappa (TV), Italy
Establishment year:
More than 30 different kind of special cheese of the Venetian tradition, like Morlacco del Grappa, Bastardo, Perbacco, Fior di Selva, and the most important DOP Montasio, Asiago and Casatella Trevigiana

The secret of its unique taste is that the milk is just partially skimmed. Legends tell that the farmers in the early morning, instead of work well, prefer to skimme the milk just partially, so they had more time to do other things... whit their wives. The regional name "pincion" refers to this story.
