Capraricca is a soft cheese with a velvety, bloomy rind. It is made from raw goat's milk of a unique barn and is aged for minimum 15 days. The pate is sweet and supple and, tends to become runny as the cheese ripens. With a slight goaty taste, this seasonal cheese pairs excellently with regional white wines. Capraricca stood second at the Caseus Veneti 2013 in the category 'Goat's cheeses'.
