Cilento Cacioricotta

The Cilento area is famous for goats and is home to a local breed, the Cilentana. The quality of their grazing land, characterized by Mediterranean macchia, shrubs and cespitose grasses, is reflected in the local cheeses, which are distinguished by their aromatic complexity. One particularly outstanding example is Cacioricotta, named after the unusual technique used for curdling the milk, partly using rennet (like “cacio,” cheese) and partly using heat (like ricotta).

Season

Made throughout the year, according to the specific breed characteristics, which allow a good or fair milk production without interruption throughout the year. The product can be eaten fresh (2/3 days), semi-mature or mature (up to 30/40 days).

As well as being an important economic resource, goat farming in the Cilento area represents a characteristic element of the landscape and helps to preserve it. Among the objectives of the Presidium (which brings together six farmers and cheesemakers who have invested in the activity) are to improve cheese-aging techniques, promote the little-known fresh and semi-aged Cacioricotta and help farmers increase the size of their herds and thus also milk yields.
