Don Olivo is a semi-soft, straw yellow cheese made from raw cow's milk. It is aged for a minimum of 4 months with extra virgin oil and black olives to create a characteristic Mediterranean flavour. The intense, rustic flavour, enhanced by the oil's tang, tastes delicious with antipasto or tapas, or melted on a grilled veggie sandwich.
