Pian Segno young
If this cheese were an actor it would have a star on the Hollywood walk of fame.
Pian Segno is an incredible cheese produced exclusively with cow milk from the grasslands of the Lukmanier Pass. During summertime, cows graze on those breathtaking grasslands rich in flowers and alpine herbs. And it is thanks to alpine flora that the milk gets rich with the amazing flavours of flowers and herbs. Pian Segno is usually matured for at least 6 months, but it is with the 1st year of aging that it becomes an unforgettable experience. With every bite, one is left with the impression to breath the fresh air of the grasslands on the Lukmanier pass.
