Brigante is crafted with the freshest sheep???s milk on the exotic Mediterranean isle of Sardinia. Legend says that ancient shepherds made young Brigante by pressing curds into woven baskets. To honor the legend, Pinna forms Brigante in basket weave molds. Cured for only 20-30 days, this semi-soft cheese has a mild flavor and buttery texture. The cheese imparts a fresh milky aroma and its flavor has hints of herbs. The rind is light brown and is covered by a natural coating which guards against mold while allowing the cheese to continue to mature.
