Don Carlo is a noble cheese originating from the Puglia region in southern Italy. It is produced in the historic medieval farm of "Masseria del Duca", in the province of Taranto. The recipe for the cheese was passed down through generations wherein it was dictated that the raw cow’s milk cheese be made with kid goat rennet.

This pale yellow, hard cheese is aged on the location of the old farm. Its pate is crumbly and flakes easily, but is suitable for grating. The rind is rubbed with extra virgin olive oil produced on the same farm.

Don Carlo has a salty taste and an intense flavour that becomes pronounced with age. The presence of kid goat rennet gives the cheese a pleasantly spicy kick. Aromatic white wines or young red wine make a great match with this interesting cheese.
