Pannerone is a soft cheese produced in Italy. The name is derived from the word 'Panera' that means 'cream' in Italian. It is one of the creamiest cheeses available and contains a very high fat content. The cheese is made with additional cream and milk fat added to unpasteurised cow's milk. Pannerone is aged for 3 months in a moisture-contained room.

Upon ripening, it develops an off-white colour and a natural ash casing to protect it from too much moisture in the air.

The cheese tastes smooth with undertones of bitterness. It has a slightly grainy texture and a sweet aftertaste. Once cut, it lasts for 3 weeks in the refrigerator. Pannerone is excellent as a table cheese and taste well with fresh fruit.
