'little' mountain cheese

The name of this soft, mild herb-flavoured mountain cheese, generally eaten while fairly fresh, derives from the Latin caseulus 'little cheese'. It was traditionally made in the autumn and eaten during the winter.

The casolèt della Val di Sole, Pejo e Rabbi, aged for at least 20 days, is in the Ark of Taste.
