Bitto della Valtellina
Bitto is a rare cheese, produced in alpine pastures often inaccessible to mechanized transport. Despite the harshness of living and working high in the mountains, almost totally isolated for months at a time, there are still mountain folk alive today willing to make this cheese. Named after the Valtellina region, all Bitto is made in the artisan manner, with techniques dating back to the seventeenth century. It is made from a blend of approximately 90% cow's milk and 10% goat's milk and aged up to one year. Bitto's flavor is tangy and wonderful, while its aroma is sweet and botanical. Please don't tell too many people about this undiscovered treasure. The people of Valtellina can only make a modest amount of cheese every year!
