Ricotta cheese is not really a cheese and it is made from the whey left over from the curd, which is cooked again in order to bind milk proteins. Therefore it is more correct to consider ricotta as a dairy product and not as a cheese, as cheese is, in simple words, coagulated milk (by means of rennet, an enzyme of animal or vegetal origin).
Ricotta Carnica is a hard ricotta cheese, which is also smoked. Typical of the Friuli region, it is produced with the whey left over from the processing of Formaggio di Malga cheese, brought almost to boiling point in the copper cauldron and mixed with a small amount of whey, mixed with wild aromatic herbs (this mixture is called "sitz").
After being drained and salted, the ricotta is smoked over beech wood embers in a special room.

As it often happens, these methods of aging and refining are also born from the need to preserve the cheese: let's remember that cheese is a "living" food, just like mother yeast, therefore cheese also needs to be cared for on a daily basis. Smoking is one of the many methods to preserve the product, taking advantage of the preservative properties of the process. It goes without saying that the cheese will also acquire new aromas and scents


The company
When great-grandfather Luigi Guffanti, in 1876, began to age Gorgonzola, his brilliant intuition was the purchase of an abandoned silver mine in Valganna, in the province of Varese. The rest is simply history!
Five generations later, the attention to the artisanal quality of the dairy product and the passion for accurate refining continue to characterize the Guffanti-Fiori family, consolidated to this day as one of the best refiners in the world.
