Raschera is a hard, semi-fat, pasteurized cow’s milk cheese that comes from Piemonte, Italy. The name of the cheese is derived from Lake Raschera, which lies at the foot of Mt Mongioie. The geographical area of production for the cheese covers the entire commune of Cuneo which is located in the Piemonte region. The cheese is matured for at least a month to develop a fine and delicate flavour. Slightly spicy and salty when aged, the texture is elastic and dotted with irregular holes throughout the cheese.

Raschera D'alpeggio is made using raw cow's milk. The cows are grazed only in mountain areas of Cuneo. This cheese is aged for 6 months. This natural rind cheese has grassy and bright aroma.
