Fire-branded caciocavallo Di Pasquo - Agnone


The genuine shape of a timeless tradition.

Shaped by our cheesemakers’ expert hands, the caciocavallo tells our story. When eating Di Pasquo’s caciocavallo you can actually taste our dairy history. But what is caciocavallo? 

It is a stretched curd cheese with a semi-hard rind and a firm yet elastic paste. It is made only using top-quality pasteurized cow’s milk. The external rind is smooth and thin and takes on different shades of color, from white to yellow-brown, depending on the aging period.

It is renowned for its iconic shape similar to a gourd or a teardrop with a small head. It is tied with natural twine around its neck. That's how it dangles from a rope for a minimum of 30 days, developing its edible rind. The practical twine makes it perfect to be hung easily, in the cellar or in a cool place, to extend the ripening process. With prolonged aging, it picks up pungent, earthy undertones and fruity aromas.

Son of our land, Caciocavallo cheese is a badge of Molise in Italy and in the world. In love with its history, with its intense aroma, its mellow flavor, its young sweetness and its mature spiciness, we made out of the teardrop-shaped caciocavallo our flagship product and our seal of approval for our unique quality.

Here at Di Pasquo, we think that sensory experiences aren't easily expressed in words. So, what's the best way to describe the taste of our authentic caciocavallo? None, you should only try it.

Fire-branded caciocavallo is the maximum expression of the Di Pasquo flavor you will get to know and love.


Italian caciocavallo: recipes

Flavorsome and naturally lactose-free, the Italian caciocavallo can be used in a variety of special ways. For example, you can grill it until it melts on toasted slices of homemade bread. When hung and grilled, we call it caciocavallo impiccato.

When slightly aged, our fire-branded caciocavallo perfectly pairs with jams and honey for savory tastings.
