bastardo del Grappa

cow's milk cheese from Mount Grappa

It may sound like a rogue, booze-fueled condottiere, but it's really a peaceful straw yellow cheese, which earned its name from being made from milk that for chronological or geographical reasons cannot be legitimately made into the more prestigious Morlacco. Made for over a thousand years around Monte Grappa, it is a semi cooked semi fat cheese, gaining a grainy, compact texture and herbal fragrant aroma as it ages.
