Quintessa's Italian Cheddar


Named after one of our Jersey Girls this Big, robust cheese boasts surprisingly complex flavors for a cheese so young.  The texture has a slight bounce giving way to a crumble akin to Romano.  It's comforting and sticks to your ribs like a slow-simmered Bolognese made by an Italian grandmother.  And it fills the palate like a big red wine with notes of almonds toasted in butter.

Aged 6 months. Comes in 1/2 lb. wedges
