La Bottega is an adventurous, flavorful line of some of the more unique, and admittedly interesting, cheeses from BelGioioso cheese. They include American Grana which is a great young version of parm that’s both sweet and nutty, as well as their Provolone Extra, a 24 month old provolone, which combines the butteriness of a provolone with the sharpness of an aged cheese.
Also a part of this line is Crescenza-Stracchino, a tangy, smooth spreadable cheese. We’re also excited to carry their Gorgonzola, which is a mix of cow's and sheep's milk. It does have a bite, but has a crumbly texture, more so than traditional Gorgonzola. For a well-known, bigger cheese producer like BelGioioso, a line like this shows their passion and commitment to traditional Italian cheese production.
The BelGioioso La Bottega line is available in 4oz packages for $2.99/each at the Cheese Shop at both Jungle Jim’s locations.
