Nicciolo is a pasteurized cow's milk cheese from La Casera of Italy of Piedmont region. The cheese is aged for 40 to 80 days that gives a strong aroma with a sweet roasted hazelnut flavour and a tangy and milky taste. The outer brown-orange rind is moist to touch as a result of frequent brine baths. Under the rind is a smooth off-white paste with eyes towards the centre. With a crumbly white texture and a very delicate flavour, it goes well with nutty beers like an Irish Cream Ale. Also a good accompaniment with sparkling wines such as Brut. It can also be served with fresh fruits such as nectarines and apricots.
