Robiola is one of the most appreciated Italian cheeses. Available in the best supermarkets and Italian food shops, it has an incredible creamy texture and a delicate taste that makes it perfect for many preparations. A product of Piedmont (North Italy), Robiola is made with sheep’s milk. The most renowned and protected designation of origin is Roccaverano’s Robiola.

We suggest Coda di Volpe 2022  by Antica Hirpinia. The sip is dry, balanced, corroborated by a good freshness and acidity. Good persistence, with an aftertaste of fresh citrus fruit. For the full review click here.
