Caciocavallo Cheese- Imported from Sicily

Sicily is know for it's caciocavallo
Caciocavallo is made by hand-pulling cows milk. This technique is an art in itself in which the cheese rises in the way it is handled and pulled. Caciocavallo has a sharp flavor similar to it's sister provolone, though with a drier texture that gives the cheese a distinct al dente style quality. Caciocavallo is best enjoyed with spicier Italian cured meats such as our very own SOUPY. Hand Cut approx 10-14 oz wedge
Texture: Semi Hard
Type of Milk: Cow
Region: Sicily
Age Time: At least 3 months

We finally found some caciocavallo cheese from Italy, so we could enjoy an Italian dish we had eaten while in Europe.

2 of 5 Melted and expired June 17, 2020
Reviewer: Nadia Caffesse from Austin, TX United States  
My father is fond of saying that Caciocavallo cheese is the reason that old Sicilians will live forever. Fortuna's is one of the few places to sell the imported variety of Caciocavallo, so I happily ordered it to be shipped to my dad a Father's Day gift. However, my father was sorry to report that the cheese arrived unpleasantly soft, oozing and sweating from being shipped in poor packaging. He was also disappointed to see that  the sell-by date (clearly printed on Fortuna's label), had expired almost two weeks prior. In the future, I would urge Fortuna's to reevaluate their shipping procedures when filling orders for locations like Texas. Our summer can start as early as May! Regular packaging simply won't protect your products from our heat.
