Ancient Italian butchery is an art without equal. Discover the fascinating world of artisanal cured meats!
Matured at least 8 months in a natural cave
Only goat’s milk from South Tyrolean pastures
Intense goat and mountain flavor
Capriz always adopts an eye for its little gem Ziegiz Caverna. After the goat’s milk arrives fresh from the South Tyrolean farms by hand, the cheese is transferred to a natural stone cavern, where it is left to mature for more than 8 months on Trentino spruce boards and turned every other day.
Once the aging process is over, Ziegiz Caverna is ready to be tasted. It is a cheese with an intense and refined flavor with an aftertaste of hay, typical of goat’s milk, with a hard paste and low in fat, which you would never want to stop eating. It is truly a gem of flavor and sophistication.
Aged goat cheeses typically call for savory, dry red wines that can support a cheese of such flavor and intensity.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
INGREDIENTS: Goat’s milk, Salt, Rennet, Ferments, Lysozyme
Cheese is the most produced and most varied food in Italy. Every small town has its own methods and raw materials, handed down through the centuries to this day. But if it is such an ancient source of livelihood, consumed since time immemorial, can cheese be harmful to human health? The answer is quite clear, however, it is important to make distinctions.
Our ancestors used to consume cheese made from unprocessed milk milked from healthy, free-range animals. In recent years, however, the spasmodic pursuit of quantity has penalized the quality of life of dairy animals and consequently the quality of cheese. The pasteurization to which milk is subjected also deprives cheeses of all the microflora and nutrients so useful to the human organism.
The solution then can only be one: progress by moving backward. Raw milk cheeses, rich in vitamins, positive microbacteria and natural nutrients still exist and are what is healthiest you can eat.
By choosing cheeses from small producers you are assured of the healthy origin of the milk and the authenticity of the resulting cheeses. You will benefit in taste, nature’s true taste, in health, and you will help rebalance man’s relationship with animals. Can you ask for anything better?
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
