Prima Donna combines the traditional way of Dutch cheese making with the intricate flavours of Parmesan. The cheese is eaten only when it reaches the pinnacle of maturity and flavour. Throughout the aging periods, Prima Donna is identified into four varieties - fino, mature and forte, each with a unique Italian flavour. The fourth is leggero, which contains only 17.5% fat content, making it ideal for diet conscious cheese lovers.Prima Donna is characterized by "little white dots" or crystals that can be seen more prominently in the extra aged varieties maturo and forte. The cheese brings out its innate sensation with red wines such as a Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah or Zinfandel.Prima Donna fino is best known for its rich, full flavour and its slightly sweet and nutty taste. Lactose and gluten free, it works well on bread, shaved into slices, and suitable into a fondue.

Smoky / nutty flavor. Layered flavors, good to eat by itself. Good for snacking. Got it at the cheese market in Longmont
