Born out of necessity for those who remained isolated in the high mountains, but which immediately became noble at the end of the 1200s, Castelmagno is a particular cheese, with a crumbly texture and a beautiful pearly white color, with a persistent aroma and flavor reminiscent of the flowers and herbs of the high pastures. Des Martin carries on this tradition in its extremely rare PDO "mountain pasture" version, produced exclusively from raw milk, milked and processed in the area, 1000 m above sea level and only between May and October, all to ensure a product of the highest quality and unmistakable flavor.

  • Milk: Raw cow's milk
  • Type: Hard
  • Texture: Granular
  • Rind: Natural
  • Color: Ivory with light blue veins
  • Taste: Intense, of fresh cow's milk
  • Aroma: Herbal, floral

In dowry a mixture of more than four hundred different herbs found in those pastures, where the sea wind creeps and mixes with the gusts of high altitude. Production takes place only during the mountain pasture period between May and October, with raw milk processed, milked in two successive moments in the evening and at dawn. The denomination of alpine pasture is bound to the use of pastures higher than 1000 meters. The Des Martin pastures are located above the village of Valliera between 1600 and 1900 meters of altitude.

When they are cut, they flood the environment with mountain aromas and their paste is amber-yellow, semi-hard and partly naturally blue-veined. But it is the flavor that wins you over with its sweetness, finesse, structured and robust taste, at times a little spicy: it has that complex and personal simplicity of masterpieces that are more pronounced in the more mature version. It has a crumbly texture, a beautiful pearly white color tending to ochre, a scent reminiscent of flowers, an important density, a persistent and variable taste depending on the seasoning and on each individual wheel, a flavor that speaks and remains in the memory of those who have tasted it at least once.

It is a special cheese, governed by D.O.P. regulations, in two variants: "of the mountain" which is more common, and "of the mountain pasture" which is much rarer and the pride of Des Martin's production. Castelmagno D.O.P. can only be produced, aged and packaged in the municipalities and relative hamlets of Castelmagno, Monterosso Grana and Pradleves in the province of Cuneo (Italy) using raw milk produced, milked and processed exclusively in the area.
