Teneri is a fresh buffalo riccota made by a Casa Madaio dairy farm in Cilento, Campania, Italy. It is produced by heating the mixture of fresh buffalo milk and whey obtained from buffalo mozzarella production, until ricotta curds develop. Then the curds are drained and placed into molds for maturation. Teneri has a smooth, delicate taste and a sticky, soft texture with a flowery aroma.
This pearly white cheese is used as a desert and it pairs well with a sparkling white wine.
