Crucolo cheese is one of the most famous products of Rifugio Crucolo and Valsugana area.
Sweet, Savory or Al Vino, it makes all palates happy with different and surprising nuances of flavor.
Crucolo cheese is a 100% Italian semi-hard cheese, made with cow's milk. It has a maturation of over 60 days and during its refinement the wheels receive particular attention, being turned and wetted twice a week.
Crucolo cheese takes its name from the Rifugio Crucolo restaurant, at an altitude of 1,100 meters at the foot of the Lagorai mountain chain in the Dolomites. Its cellar houses numerous cheese wheels and is a place of delicious tastings for visitors.
Crucolo cheese has a white, buttery texture and widespread holes. It is easy to cut and has many uses in the kitchen. Ideal for an aperitif, but also as an accompaniment to first courses and polenta thanks to its unique feature to melt perfectly. There are three variants of Crucolo cheese, which differ in seasoning and taste: Dolce (sweet), Saporito (savory) and Al Vino (wine flavored).
In the city of Concord, Massachusetts, Crucolo cheese has become a real cult.

A special moment that celebrates not only the Crucolo cheese, but also its origins and territory, Italy and Trentino.
