The Maccagno is a cru of excellent toma from the mountains around Biella. It takes its name from the Alps of the same name located beneath Mount Cossarello, north of Biella.
The production of Maccagno began in the valley to the east of Biella, following the practice spread throughout the province. It was the favorite cheese of Queen Margherita of Savoy and Quintino Sella Minister of the Kingdom of Italy and founder of the Italian Alpine Club.
This original version is produced with the use of raw cow milk.
To enjoy this cheese fully, we suggest enjoying it with a strong white wine or medium body red wine. It also is great with fresh fruit or with a good mostarda compote and polenta by Mulino San Giorgio.
