For this creation we use a hand made grey cheese with edible vegetal charcoal. Hence the name Ligni comes (Latin "carbon ligni"). A rustic cheese with intensive-substantial smell and easily sourish aroma. Grained and mellow consistency. Excellent as an hors-d'oeuvre in combination with olive oil.

A hard cheese that is left to age for about a year and a half. The wheels are then wrapped in chestnut leaves which transform them and enrich them with a strong, exceptional flavour. It pairs well with great Langa wines but is ideal with important dark craft beer too.
It's a good choice as aperitif, with tasteful starters, grilled fish, seafood, crustaceans and white meat.
