Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP by Luigi Guffanti DOP
From one of the most famous cheese affineurs in Italy comes this sumptuous Mozzarella di Bufala. Unfortunately, buffalo milk Mozzarella was only awarded denomination of protected origin (DOP) status in 1993, too late to prevent the generic name from being associated with stringy paste products made with cow’s milk. However, the Campania buffalo milk Mozzarella is still produced in the area which has been producing ‘mozzarellas’ or ‘provature’ possibly since the Middle Ages, since it is a swamp area ideal for buffalo grazing. It is important to consume the cheese at room temperature since it loses much of its flavor when cold from the ‘fridge.

When great-grandfather Luigi Guffanti, in 1876, began to age Gorgonzola cheese, his brilliant intuition was to purchase an abandoned silver mine in Valganna, in the Varese province. In the mine, with its temperature and humidity constant year-round, the cheese matured so well that Luigi quickly cornered the markets: his sons, Carlo and Mario, at the beginning of the 1900's, exported as far as Argentina and California, lands of Piedmont and Lombard emigration. Maximum attention to the handcrafted quality of the cheeses and passionate care taken in the refinement process mark the proud Guffanti-Fiori family tradition that has been handed down for five generations.
