Produced in small quantities as a farmhouse or artisan cheese, Crucolo is a variety that is made from unpasteurized cow's milk. The Tretino region of northern Italy is the area best known for this type of cheese where it is moulded into a wheel of approximately 1 to 2 pounds in weight. Ivory tan in color and creamy in texture, Crucolo provides a mild, buttery flavor with a slightly tangy overtone. The paste of this cheese contains numerous small holes throughout and it has the appearance and elastic feel of being similar to Swiss cheese. Crucolo is a good snacking or appetizer cheese to be served with grapes and light crackers.
