Its soft, slightly elastic texture and typical, intensely aromatic almost pungent flavour make Stilfser a unique speciality of its kind, destined to amaze both cheese-lovers and even the most demanding of connaisseurs
The cheese, which is soft in texture and contains small holes, takes its natural, balanced flavour the creamy high-altitude milk which conceals all the fascinating secrets of traditional cheese-making processes in this area.
The relatively short maturation of this cheese demonstrates its consistency in the palate softy and creamy. This cut-cheese of natural fresh milk owns a yellowish bark and a tender-yellow dough with irregular punching. Smell and taste are intensely aromatic.
After about 60 days of ripening, Mila Ortler Cheese forms an uneven brown rind. Its firm consistency, irregular eyes, distinctive milky flavour and mild aroma add up to a unique South Tyrol specialty cheese that is both satisfying and versatile.
As soon as the cheese is mature, it is rolled in black pepper. This gives it a covering of black pepper that rounds off its spicy, peppery flavour: a subtle, tasty combination of flavours that guarantees perfect satisfaction.
