Quadrello® di Bufala is a water buffalo milk cheese produced by Quattro Portoni in the Lombardy region of Italy. Made from pasteurised milk, this washed-rind cheese is aged for about 40 days. It shares several attributes with Taleggio, except it is made from water buffalo milk.
The texture of Quadrello® di Bufala is deliciously creamy, with small holes and softness near the crust. Its semi-soft paste is straw-yellow, while the rind ranges from pale pinkish red to oatmeal colour. The flavours are sweet and grassy with a tangy and salty taste. Quadrello® di Bufala pairs well with Riesling, Cider, Farmhouse Ales and Malbec.
