La Tur is a soft-ripened cheese made from a blend of sheep's, cow's and goat's milk. It is produced by Caseficio dell'Alta Langa in the Alta Lange region of Italy. The cylinder shaped cheese is a light straw yellow colour with an edible soft and wrinkled rind. La Tur tastes of the sweetness of cream and butter, followed by acidic notes and yeasty flavours.

It goes with a wide variety of wine pairings, especially those with floral or honey notes.
