HISTORYAged goat’s milk cheeses are relatively rare in Italy. Pantaleo has been produced since the 1960s, when goats were first introduced to the island of Sardinia. Since they produce little milk and only for about 6 months out of the year, it’s a limited production cheese. Aging for at least 100 days tempers the goatiness of the milk, while producing a robust, pleasing, salty-sweet flavor.
HANDLINGKeep cool. When sampling allow to reach room temperature.
SERVINGSShave over salads, grate over pastas, or chisel morsels from the whole wheel. Excellent with crisp white wines and fruity reds. Try with the local Sardinian Vermentino or a lighter Cannonau.
